School Photos – Late Orders
St Augustine’s Primary School Keilor, acknowledges that education is compulsory for children and young people between the ages of 6 – 17 years, in accordance with Part 2.1.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006, unless an exemption has been granted.
Daily Student Absence Notification
All parents are required to ensure their child attends at St Augustine’s Primary School every day. Where your child is unable to attend school it is the parent’s responsibility to access the St Augustine’s School App and fill in the form providing all required details to inform the school of the child’s absence. The absence form needs to be submitted by 9.00 am if your child will not be attending school.
Parents should inform the school in advance of any planned absence. Please also email your child’s teacher if they will be absent for a prolonged time. Sufficient notification must be given where the absence is anticipated for greater than 2 weeks. Note: Long periods of absence are discouraged. Parents are expected to plan family holidays during school holiday periods where possible.
Where a student is late for school it is the parent’s responsibility to direct their child to collect a late pass from the office.
In the event that contact is not made with the school on the morning of the absence the school will make contact with the parents, via SMS, to inform them of this occurrence. Where a parent fails to respond to the initial contact by the school within 1 hour, a second attempt to contact them will be made. In the event that this communication remains unsuccessful, a subsequent attempt to contact individuals identifiedas the student’s emergency contact will be made. The school will make all reasonable attempts to determine the location and wellbeing of the student.
