Royal Road School places a high value on attendance at school. Continuous absence seriously affects children’s learning processes. If your child is going to be absent it is helpful if you let us know by telephone or by a note sent with a brother, sister or neighbour.
You can ring and talk to someone or leave a message on our answerphone at any time or use the “Report an Absence” form. The phone number is 833 7675.
Alternatively, you can leave a text message on our school cell phone, the phone number is 0212624199.
When your child returns to school after being absent, a note explaining the reason for the absence is requested.
We monitor the attendance of those few children who are often away or late to school. Parents are contacted when either of these becomes a problem, and we may advise the Waitakere Truancy Officer.
