Excellence Through Endeavour

Attendance

At RTS, we set high expectations to ensure all students are able to reach their full potential.

We will consistently work towards a goal of 100% attendance for all students.

If your child is absent you must:

  • Contact us as soon as possible on the first day of absence;
  • Send a note in on the first day they return with an explanation of the absence – you must do this even if you have already telephoned us. This can be recorded in the Planner.

If your child is absent we will:

  • Telephone or text you on the first day of absence if we have not heard from you by 11:00am
  • Refer the absence to child’s Year Leader and Academic Tutor if absent for 3 days, to make additional contact
  • Invite you in to discuss the situation if absences persist.
