Earlier this year it was explained in the newsletter that there will be a new Attendance Policy for Victorian schools.
We all know that daily attendance is important for all children and young people to succeed in education and to ensure they do not fall behind both socially and developmentally. School participation maximises life opportunities for children and young people by providing them with education and support networks. School helps people to develop important skills, knowledge and values that set them up for further
learning and participation in their community.
Students are expected to attend Brunswick East Primary School during normal school hours every day of each term unless there is an approved exemption from school attendance for the student, this includes holidays or illness.
The first thing that we will be doing at Brunswick East Primary School to implement this Policy is to ask parents to notify us of student absences by 8:45am on the first day of absence.
Do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing Brunswick East Primary School on 9387 3361.
