WWPS absence notices.

WWPS School Attendance Policy

To get the most out of education, children need to go to school every day. School attendance has a major influence on educational outcomes. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to achieve better results at school and are more likely to complete their schooling.

Parents can encourage their child to attend school by having a positive attitude to learning and education.

Poor school attendance patterns can start as early as grade Prep. It is important that from the first day of school parents set an expectation that their children will be at school every day. Missing an average of ten days of school a term adds up to missing two full years of schooling by the end of Year 10.

 

If your child is absent from school you must notify the school as soon as possible.  This can be done on the morning of the absence (before 8.50am) by phone or email or after he/she returns to school via a phone call, email, hand written note or ‘student absence slip’.
