St Thomas More Catholic Primary School


Absentee Note form  ->Absentee Note

With the added legal responsibility that schools are having to deal with as far as student attendance is concerned, there will be some changes to how our absentees are managed within the school. The Catholic Education Office has designed a new computer based attendance register system that will be implemented in the school in the next few weeks. Due to this, students who have not presented at school when the roll is taken (9:00am) will be marked as absent. The school will notify parents (by SMS) if your child is marked as absent and you have not informed us that they will not be here. If you are late, you MUST bring your child to the front office to sign in. Please do not send them, or take them, directly to class. Conversely, if you are taking your child out of the school during the school day, they must be signed out at the front office. If your child is sick, please inform the school as soon as you can so that we can record this.

The school still requires a written note from parents for any absentee that children may have. It would be appreciated if the teachers OR the school did not have to chase these up. As the new system is implemented, I will continue to keep parents informed of our requirements, which are made with the best interest of all families in mind.

This one of the main reasons we now need to have all parents up to date contact details.  Please inform the school of any changes to your contact details as soon as they occur.
