At Salisbury East High School we believe it is vital for every student to attend school 100% of the time. Regular attendance enables children to achieve success at school and widens their choices after school. It helps to establish positive attitudes to work and commitment.
Students who have poor attendance patterns are at risk of not achieving their educational and social potential. They are disadvantaged in the quality of choices they are able to make in later life situations.
At Salisbury East High School we use DayMap to record daily and lesson by lesson attendance, and have implemented systems to promptly address issues related to non-attendance.
Under the Education Act of South Australia, parents/caregivers are held responsible for the regular attendance of all children in their care. All children aged between 6-16 years if age must be enrolled and attend school regularly.
Phone calls from the school enquiring regarding absences are made because we care about your child’s education and should not be misinterpreted as interfering.
