Attendance & Absences

Missing school means your child misses out on vital information and maintaining learning routines. This can result in a loss of confidence and missing out on forming vital friendships.

Attendance is recorded each day. As a parent or caregiver you are responsible for ensuring your child attends school every day, unless your child:

  • has an unavoidable medical or dental appointment (preferably these should be made after school or during holidays)
  • is required to attend a recognised religious holiday
  • is required to attend an exceptional or urgent family circumstance (such as attending a funeral)
  • is sick, or has an infectious illness.

When your child or children are absent from school you will receive a text message from the school. Please respond to this message as soon as possible.  This is an automated message that helps keep all of our students safe. 

Student absences can also be submitted through via email - oranpark-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au or by phoning the school office after 8:30am - 02 4632 4651.

Department of Education information regarding Absence & Attendance can be found at > School attendance - parent information (also in community languages)
