Absences

All pupil absences should be reported to the school in writing, email, Schoolbag App or by phone. The school calls parents of an unexplained absence on the day. When the absence is to be of one or two days only, a phone call to the school would be appreciated and a note should be sent when the child returns to school.

Appointments with Teachers

Staff are aware of the importance of maintaining close contact with families. Important and useful information is often shared at the beginning and end of the school day. Please be mindful that staff need to be ready to teach at 9.00am as well as supervising children leaving school in the afternoon. Staff also have meeting commitments in the afternoons commencing at 3.15pm. We would greatly appreciate if parents could make appointments for discussions, which require more than a few moments. If you wold like to make an appointment with your child's teacher please contact the front office and they can arrange an appointment for you.


Assemblies

A whole school assembly is held every two weeks on Thursday at 2:15pm concluding at 3:00pm in the Hall. The assemblies are organised and conducted by stages in turn and are an opportunity for students to showcase work and perform items such as plays, dances and instrumental/choral items. Parents and family members are encouraged to attend. Assembly dates and presenting classes are published in the Newsletter and the Term Calendar.
