Online Absence Form

Online Absence Form

The  Education Act (1990) and requires parents to inform the school if their children will be absent from school on a school day and the reason for the absence..

Following an absence from school, you must ensure that within 7 days you provide your child’s school with a verbal or written explanation for the absence. However, if the school has not received an explanation from you within 2 days, the school may contact you to discuss the absence.

To facilitate this we now accept the completion of this online form or a written note to your child's class teacher. Please note the school may follow up and check absences as they deem necessary. ​
