Special arrangements will be made concerning authorised school activities that require students' attendance at the School outside these hours.

Office Hours

The office hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. All Office operations are conducted during these hours.

Student Attendance 

Late Arrivals

Students who arrive late must report to the Office before proceeding to class. The student must have a late card to give to the classroom teacher to ensure students are correctly marked on the role.

Early Departure

Students may not leave the School premises during school hours without signing out through the Office. Parents/guardians must collect their children from the office.

Absence from School & Extended Leave

Parents/Guardians will be notified of absences via text message. Parents are to click the link in the message to give a reason for the absence.

Feeling Unwell

If students feel unwell at school, they must inform their teacher, who will send them to the office. If students feel unwell during recess or lunch, they must go straight to the Front Office for assistance.

Student Items

Restricted Items at School

Students are not allowed to use mobile phones, smart watches or music players at school. These items should be switched off at all times and kept in an agreed area of the classroom.

Under no circumstances are students to use their mobile phones to contact parents.. If they need to contact parents, this must be arranged through the School Office. Likewise, any parent needing to contact their child(ren) should phone the School Office. Messages regarding how students are to travel home must not be sent to classroom teachers. They will not be actioned. All such arrangements must be communicated through the office.

Messages, Visitors and Family Circumstances

Messages for Students

If you have a message for your son/daughter, please let the office know as early as possible, as classes will not be interrupted to pass on routine messages. In case of emergencies, there will be exceptions to this rule; however, a paramount aim of the school is to safeguard the students' learning time as much as possible.

Change of Address/Family Circumstances

Parents are asked to promptly notify the school of any change of address, phone number, email address or place of employment. When parents arrange for students to stay with relatives or friends while they themselves are away from home for a period of time, the office must be informed in writing. We need particulars relating to the name, address and phone number of relatives/friends and the duration of the student's stay.

Similarly, any change in family status, such as a separation, must be notified to the school.  This is not only for administrative purposes but also so the school can work for the pastoral welfare of the child(ren).

School Visitors

Visitors can sign in at the front office using the Who’s On Location App. Additional sign-on sheets are provided for events where a large number of people are expected to sign in, and a staff member will be available to assist at events. There are Visitor guidelines on display in the office foyer.
