We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.
School Hours are from 8:50am – 3:05pm
Playground supervision commences at 8:20am and concludes at 3:30pm.
ATTENDANCE AND EXTENDED LEAVE
New attendance at school legislation has implications for schools and parents, particularly in the area of absence and exemption from school. Please note the following changes which are effective from the beginning of the 2015 school year:
- Exemption from attendance can no longer be given for holidays or leisure activities during the school term.
- Previously exemption applications which were approved by the Principal granted exemption from school for the students, with no absences recorded on the class roll.
- Holidays and leisure activities will now be recorded as absence or leave from school in school records. Please contact the Principal if you have any questions or concerns.
Holidays which are 10 school days or less require a note sent to the class teacher prior to the absence. This will be counted as leave on the class roll (L).
Holidays which are 10 or more school days and less than 100 must be applied for on new application forms (available from the drop-down list at right or the school office) prior to the leave being taken. If approved by the principal the leave will be recorded as L in the class roll and be counted in the total of the student’s absence from school. If not approved it will be recorded as an unexplained absence.
Leave for non SCS sporting events, educational or creative pursuits or for work in the entertainment industry requires an application using the exemption forms (available from the drop-down list at right or the school office).
