If your child/ren are going to be absent from school, you have the option to text the above phone number to let us know.  Please include your child’s name and reason for being absent.

At Bicton Primary School we believe that by attending school each day students have a much greater likelihood of actively engaging in the curriculum and developing the knowledge and skills they need for future personal and career success.

Our aim at Bicton Primary School is to monitor and record student attendance daily and regularly review attendance data to determine whether a student’s attendance is of concern. We also aim to monitor the reasons for student absence and to work with students, parents and teachers where necessary to improve the attendance of students who are at risk.

Policy Statement

Bicton Primary School monitors and manages student attendance in order to maximise the opportunities of all students to learn.
