Regular punctual attendance in school is absolutely necessary. By not attending school regularly your child is missing out on essential basic education.
Children leaving the school before official closing time must be collected at the school and signed out.
In the event of a pupil being absent through illness or for any other reason the class teacher should be informed by note on the pupil’s return to school. This is now a legal requirement.
Under the School Attendance Act, each child is obliged by law to attend school every day on which the school is in operation unless there is a reasonable excuse for not attending.
If a child is absent for more than 20 days in a school year, the school authorities are obliged to inform the National Education Welfare Board.
