If your child is going to be absent, we ask that you, as parents and caregivers, please ring the school by 9.15am, at the latest. This must be done every day that your child is absent.
When your child returns to school, they must bring a signed note to their classroom teacher, confirming their absence.
Please use the Student Log Book to communicate all details related to your child's absence - duration, reason, and any additional information deemed necessary.
Students who show a pattern of absence or lateness without good reason may be referred to the Truancy Service.
You can get all the school updates and information through our PNINS school app.

Our school has been working with SchoolDocs to create a website for our policies and procedures. We are excited to announce that the site is now live and available to our school community.
The school works with SchoolDocs to maintain, update, and review our policies. SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies which have been well researched and follow the Ministry of Education National Administration Guidelines. The policies and procedures are tailored to our school, and the school supplies specific information such as our charter, and procedures for behaviour management, reporting to parents, etc.
SchoolDocs updates, modifies, or creates policies in response to changes in legislation or Ministry guidelines, significant events, reviews/requests from schools, and regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. Our board of trustees has the opportunity to view changes/additions and comment on them before they are implemented. We will advise you when policies are up for review and how you can take part in the review.
We invite you to visit the site.
