Reporting a Student's Absence for Sickness

It is a Ministry requirement to have a written explanation of a student’s absence. This allows for the correct attendance code to be assigned.When your child is absent from school the school must be notified. You can do this either by:

1. By emailing  , OR
2. Leave a message on the absentee line 09 427 0900 and enter 1 to leave your absentee message. Please state your nameyour child’s name and class and reason for absence.
3. Absences can also be sent via the KingsWay School phone app. To download the app for free on iPhone or Android search 'Kingsway School' in the app store, or click this link.

If the absence is for more than one day, please advise this in your message. If the absence is three days or more a medical certificate is required.

Students Leaving Early or Arriving to School Late

Students leaving early or arriving late must:

(a) bring a note/appointment card explaining the absence AND
(b) sign in/out using the Vistab electronic tablet in the student foyer of the office

Students who become sick, or injured during school hours, must report to the Health Centre. This is a legal requirement. Only when a parent or caregiver has been contacted by the Nurse or office staff will the student be released. Students are NOT to text parents/caregivers to collect them from school, without following the correct procedures.

We would appreciate parent co-operation and assistance with this procedure so we can ensure the safety of all our students.
