Student Attendance Procedure

Student Attendance Procedure

A warning siren sounds at 8:20am and students should move quickly to Period One which commences at 8:25am. The Roll Call for the day is taken in the first 15 minutes of Period One and every period thereafter, including Care Group.

If your child is going to be absent from school please send an SMS to 0416 906 282 stating the student’s name, year, care group, date and reason for the absence by 10.00am.

 

Late to School Procedure

When students are late to school, they go straight to Student Services Reception to sign in with their Smart Rider card through the attendance kiosk. This generates a docket for them to use as a pass to get into class. If they do not have an acceptable parent note explaining this late arrival, they will be given detention that day at lunchtime. All students have been informed of this process.

There are three acceptable reasons for lateness.

1.     Medical Appointment

2.     Illness

3.     Approved Educational Activity

 

Unacceptable reasons are recorded and students are placed on a detention list. Additionally, Program Coordinator and Heads of Student Services may approve other / extenuating circumstances as an acceptable reason.  If students are continually late without a valid excuse or written notification, despite parent follow up, Program Coordinators may refer them to Lunch time detention.

Students who are frequently late to any other periods will be referred to the Head of Learning Area for consequences.

STUDENTS ARE NOT TO PROCEED TO CLASS WITHOUT FOLLOWING THE ABOVE PROCEDURE.

 

What to do if students have to leave school during the day or leave early

1.     Parents must provide their child with a note explaining the reason for leaving
        early.

2.     Students leave their class, showing the note to their teacher, and go to Student
        Services Reception to have their note signed and taken from them for filing.

3.     Students use their Smart Rider Card to sign out of the school and leave the school
        premises with a docket explaining their legitimate dismissal from school.

4.     If the student returns to school after the appointment the student must go back
        through Student Services Reception as an arrival to school and get a docket to
        enter back into a classroom.

 

Students should never leave or return to school without signing in/out at Student Services Reception.

If there is no note (phone call or SMS from parent/guardian) provided when a student arrives late, the student must attend detention at lunch time that day for 20 minutes.

·       Please note – there are three clear acceptable reasons for lateness. They are:

·       Medical Appointment

·       Illness

·       Approved Educational Activity

 

The School Nurse signs out students who are sick. Students must not ring home on their mobile phone or leave the school premises without the Nurse’s permission. The Nurse will ring home. Students also sign in/out of the Health Centre through Student Services.
