Student Attendance


Regular school attendance is essential if students are to maximise their potential. Schools, in partnership with parents, are responsible for promoting the regular attendance of students. While parents are legally responsible for the regular attendance of their children, school staff, as a part of their duty of care, monitor part or whole day absences.

At times families may apply for exemption from school if for an extended period of five consecutive days or more. Application is made through application for exemption from attendance at school. Please note that families can no longer apply for this exemption for holidays taken outside of the school holiday period.

Further information in relation to Student Attendance is found in the parent flyer.
