As you are aware, schools are obliged to report school attendance since the commencement of the Education (Welfare) Act, 2000. This obligation exists to protect children’s educational welfare. Because of this, it is important that you fill out an Absence Form if your child misses school. You should also telephone the school on the first morning of an absence.
To make it easier for parents and guardians to access the necessary document which needs to be filled out and sent into the school if a child is absent, we have now included this on the school website and can be accessed and printed out by clicking on the link below.
