Henderson Primary School places a high value on attendance at school. We know the first barrier to learning at school is attendance. Continuous absence seriously affects children’s learning. Poor attendance results in poor progress.

If your child will not be at school please make sure you let the school office know by 9.00am. If a student is absent, the school will endeavour to contact the family to find out where the student is. However, please remember that the responsibility is on the family to contact the school before 9.00am.

To let the school know your child will be absent, please fill out the form or phone the school on (09) 838 9667.

We monitor the attendance of those few children who are frequently absent or late to school. Parents are contacted when either of these becomes a problem.
