Attendance Matters

Absence Procedures

If your child is absent you must:

  • Contact the academy by 9:00am on the first day of absence and on any subsequent days of absence
  • Send a note in on the first day they return to the academy, with an explanation of the absence. This must be brought to Student Services, with the child's full name and form on.

If your child is absent we will:

  • Telephone or text/app on the first day of absence
  • Chase the following day - and then follow up in writing
  • Visit your home when absence is an ongoing concern.
