Erindale College


ABSENCES

In accordance with the Board of Senior Secondary Studies policy, it is expected that students will attend all scheduled classes/contact time/structured learning activities for the units in which they are enrolled.

If students are absent from class for one lesson, a day or longer, an explanation for the absence is required.

Erindale College has introduced  'Appsence' a interactive mobile app, with instant push notifications to parents to inform them of their child's absence from class.

All absences are still required to be explained and can be done so by:

  • Responding in-app to the College by using the 'Appsence' App
  • Email – provided a workplace email address is used
  • Handwritten notes with students full name, dates and/or lines and reason
  • Medical certificate is preferred for 3 or more consecutive days for an absence
  • If the family is planning a holiday or have a sporting commitment an 'advance notice' form must be completed prior to this absence. (Form is available from student services).  Notification of this can also be advised through the 'Appsence' App, however, the student must complete the form as well and approval given by the Principal or Deputy Principal.

All absences using any of the above methods must be submitted within five school days after returning to College.

If a parent/guardian rings the school, this is appreciated, however, they will be informed that written documentation or a response through the 'Appsence' App is still required.
