Student Absences

 

​ATTENDANCE – THE WILLOWS WAY  

Every student in our school is important to us and we are committed to providing personalised education suited to their needs.  The very first step in that is maximising learning time and we believe that if students attend every day and every learning minute of the day we are improving their opportunities for academic success. 

All students are expected to be at school by 8.40am.  If they arrive earlier than 8.40am they must go to the designated year level area until they are dismissed to go to class.  It is an expectation that all students are in class and are starting instruction by 8.45am.  Students arriving after 9am will need to go through the office.  If students are late or absent from school they will need to bring a completed Student Absence Advice (PDF 89KB) from home.
