 ABSENCES

 

Under the Department of Education Regulations, the only acceptable reasons for absence from school are illness and medical appointments that cannot be made out of school hours, or approved withdrawal classes, such as PEAC and Music Tuition.
The Department of Education Regulations require a written explanation of any absence, even if verbal (including telephone) advice has been given.
The North Morley Primary School phone application also has provision for sending absentee notifications.
