Attendance Pilot Scheme
Waitoki School has partnered with Auckland City Education Services in a pilot scheme aimed at initiating ‘a robust attendance management system’ which allows parents and caregivers to know that their children are in school each day and is able to account for students who are absent from class at any time.
Parents and caregivers are asked to contact the school as early as possible to advise if their child will be absent. This communication will be logged to indicate that the student in question is justifiably absent. Students who are absent without notice will be followed up and their parents and caregivers will be contacted to inform them that their child is absent from class without permission.
When advising the school, please remember to clearly state your child’s name and tutor class, as well as the reason that they will be absent from school.
The school may be notified of an absence in any one of the following ways:
- Call the Attendance Line free from your home phone or cell phone on 0800 1TAMAKI (0800 182625)
- Text us on 022 4028706
