Please see the school’s Attendance policy in the policy section of this website.
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. The Board of Management is obliged to inform Tusla when a pupils has been absent for 20 or more days in any given year.
When a pupil has been absent for 15 days, a letter from the school will be sent to the pupil’s parents to inform them that if their child reaches 20 absences then Túsla will be informed.
In the event of a pupil being absent through illness or for any other reason, the class teacher should be informed by written note (pupil’s journal) on the pupil’s return to school or through the use of the Aladdin app. If it is anticipated that the absence will be of a lengthy duration, the school should be contacted by telephone or email.
When it is necessary for a pupil to leave school early, a note must be sent to the class teacher.
(Parents/ guardians are asked to call personally to the office to collect the child).
