Absences & Consent
Thank you for working with our systems to ensure the safety of all students in our care
If a student is unable to attend due to illness, or other reasons, please notify Student Services via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 9540 4411.
If a student is marked absent, and it isn’t rectified prior to 10am, an SMS absentee message will be sent out by Student Services. This is for the safety of students and to make addressing absences easier for parents.
Students who are late, even if only a few minutes, need to ensure they sign in and get a late note. This will ensure their roll is accurate and they are marked present. This is essential for emergency information but it also prevents parents from receiving absentee messages when students are at school.
We have Kiosk available in reception and in Student Services for students to sign in. Students are simply required to enter their surname into the ipad, select the correct student, then select ‘Late’ or ‘Late – Appointment’ depending on the reason for being late. They are then printed a receipt which needs to be taken to their class teacher so they are aware of them having signed in. Secondary students can use their student cards to sign in with Kiosk by scanning their barcode with the rear camera.
Students who need to be signed out during the day for appointments or other reasons need to be given a written note or notification, given via email or phone to Student Services. If notification has been given, Secondary students can sign themselves out and wait to be collected in front reception. Primary students must be signed out by parents from Student Services and then collected from the classroom.
These processes are in place to ensure student safety.
SCBC School App
Our school app was developed by our Year 9 Media students in 2016. This has up to date information for contact information, primary and secondary calendars, newsletters, and more. It also has an absentee form that can be filled out to alert Student Services of any illnesses or upcoming holidays.
All our medical information and excursion information are now done through Consent2Go. Parents are sent a link through email to update contact and medical information at regular intervals. If you require your information to be updated at a time other than when the email has been sent out, you can request an update link here.
All events/excursions will generate an email invitation. This will require you to check through all contact and medical information as a part of the process to ensure everything is up to date. Simply click though the four pages and it will then accept the student as attending the event/excursion on the system.
