Scott Point School uses an electronic attendance register system to record the roll in the morning and afternoon to monitor learner attendance.


Frequent absences can affect a child’s learning and social development. At Scott Point School, we have a positive attitude toward learning and an expectation that regular attendance supports learner progress and achievement. We will be in contact with parents if their child’s attendance falls below 90%.
