Attendance

ATTEND TODAY,  ACHIEVE TOMORROW!

At Playford International College, we are committed to providing high quality learning, creating safe and caring environments which promote equity and diversity.

To be successful at school, students should attend regularly and participate in educational programs. 

“There is a clear link between getting a Year 12 certificate (or equivalent qualification) and improved social and economic outcomes for all young people.” Australian Government, Department of Education and Training

We believe that:

What can families do to support a young person to attendance school:

Parent/ Caregiver

Note: After three days a written explanation is required

Note:

Students have a responsibility too:

What to do if a student is absent, late or leaving early:

Parent/ Caregiver:

Notify the school on the day of their child being late, absent or leaving early.

Note: After three days a written explanation is required

Student:

Sign in/out at Student Services.

Negotiate with the classroom teacher to catch up on any work missed.

Arriving late or absent: If no communication has not been received from a parent/caregiver, the student must provide a note signed by a parent/caregiver to Student Services.

Leaving early from school: If no communication has not been received from a parent/caregiver, the student must provide a note signed by a parent/caregiver, Mentor Teacher AND Year Level Manager / House Leader to Student Services.
