Normal attendance notification requirements apply for all students. Please refer to our school Attendance Policy for further information.
As per Operations Guide dated 31/1/2022:
'All students are expected to attend onsite unless they are formally registered as being home-schooled. Parent preference is not an approved reason for students to be absent due to COVID-19.
Students who are required to isolate or quarantine should be supported in the same way as students with an extended absence due to illness or injury, with learning materials provided to support their continued learning. Schools are not expected to provide a full remote learning program in these circumstances'
Attendance and Students who may be Medically Vulnerable
- Schools must ensure students with medical needs have an up-to-date Student Health Support Plan and accompanying condition-specific health management plan (such as an Asthma Action Plan), based on medical advice from the student’s medical or health practitioner, and consultation with the student and parents and carers. Please refer to the Health Care Needs policy for further information on the student health support planning process. For additional information to support decision-making, refer to:
Students absent due to Covid-19 like symptoms
- If a student needs to stay at home as they are unwell, please add reason to Compass eg. CHO/medical advice - mild COVID-19 symptoms. This will provide us with the relevant information to review any possible breach of the Attendance Policy and/or organise rescheduling of formal assessments.
Our school records student attendance in accordance with the Attendance Policy.
