IT’S NOT OK TO BE AWAYRegular attendance at school is important. If your child misses the basic skills in primary school they can experience difficulties with their learning. Regular attendance is essential to make sure learning is not disrupted.The school should be notified of the reason for a child’s absence, preferably using the FlexiSchools app,
Use FlexiSchools for an Absence Note:
This message is sent directly to the school email so the office can record the absnece and the teacher is notified.
CanteenThe school canteen provides lunches five day per week. The preferred way or ordering is using the QKR app. Alternatively, an order can be made using a paper bag. Write the child's name, grade and order on a brown paper bag containing money. Children place this in their grade's lunch order basket, which is taken to the canteen and returned with the made up order at lunchtime.
