Kuratau School

Truancy

 

 

Without regular attendance children fail to make educational progress. 

By law all children must attend school. 

Teachers forward a list of absentees to the office where caregivers are contacted. 

If a child is absent a phone message is most appreciated.

A formal process is enacted in the case of regular truancy this involves  meetings, letters home and the  involvement of Truancy officers and Turangi Police.
