New Student Attendance Guidelines

The Victorian Education Department – Student Attendance Guidelines
From the end of Term 2 2018, all Victorian government schools are required to contact parents/carers as soon as practicable on the same day of an unexplained student absence. If your child is absent on a particular day and you have not contacted the school to explain why, the absence will be marked as unexplained.
Protecting the safety and well-being of children through the reporting and monitoring of absenteeism is the responsibility of both parents/carers and schools.

New Attendance Requirements
If your child is sick or absent, you are required to notify the school as soon as possible on the day of absence, by phone or the school App Felxibuzz.
Notifying the school of your child’s absence either prior to, or on the day that they will be away, helps ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and will fulfil your legal responsibility.

Contact details
There are times when we will need to contact you, including on the day, if your child is absent and you haven’t informed the school as to why. Do we have your most up to date contact details? If not, please advise the school ASAP so we can update our records. Please remember to contact the school if any of your details or your circumstances change.


Protecting the safety and well-being of children through the reporting and monitoring of absenteeism is the responsibility of both parents/carers and schools.
