Student Absence Notification
If your child is sick or absent, you are required to notify their school as soon as possible on the day of absence using one of the following methods:
Online via the Sentral Parent Portal. https://banyanfieldsps.sentral.com.au/portal2
Telephone the school office on 03 9782 1333, press 1 to report your child's absence. Leaving a voice message with your child’s name, class, date of absences and reason.
Email the school absence email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your child’s name, class, date of absences and reason.
Notifying us of your child’s absence either prior to, or on the day that they will be away, helps ensure the safety and well being of your child.
Why do I need to notify the school if my child is absent?
Schools need to know when and why a child is absent and you need to know if your child isn’t at school. From the end of Term 2 2018, all Victorian government schools are required to contact parents/carers as soon as practicable on the same day of an unexplained student absence. If we haven't received notification parents/carers will be contacted through either email or text message.
