Ensuring our school is well managed

Student Attendance at School Policy

Under the NSW Education Act, Kincoppal-Rose Bay is required to ensure that all students meet certain attendance standards. This includes mandatory attendance for students under 17 years of age unless permission is received for any additional leave or if exemptions apply.

To apply for Extended Leave for your child, for absences of 3 days or more, you are required to complete the Application for Extended Leave – Vacation/Travel Form.

An Application for Extended Leave may be due to:

  • Misadventure or unforeseen event
  • Participation in special events not related to the school
  • Domestic necessity such as illness of a family member
  • Attendance at funeral
  • Travel within Australia and Internationally
  • Recognised religious festivals or ceremonial occasions

Please print, sign and return to the Junior School Reception for junior students and to Student Reception for senior students.

To apply to have your child exempt from attending the School for any period of time you are required to complete the Application for Exemption from Attendance at School Form.

An Application for Exemption may be due to;

  • Participation in elite arts or elite sporting events
  • Short term employment in an industry

Please print, sign and return to the Junior School Reception for junior students and to Student Reception for senior students.

These forms will be reviewed and approved by the Principal if leave is deemed appropriate. If leave is approved by the Principal, a Certificate of Extended Leave or Certificate of Exemption will be provided to the Parent or Guardian.
