Attendance Matters



Attendance and Attendance Procedure

Everybody benefits from regular student attendance. These benefits include greater student safety, community well-being and a sense of connectedness for all.

New Zealand law requires children from the age of 6 to be present at school except in special circumstances such as illness etc. Parents must notify the school if their child is absent from school.  

In order to ensure the Health and Safety of all students at Zayed College for Girls, this is a friendly reminder that if you wish to remove your student from school during the day, we can only allow this, if you are the person nominated on your child's profile. 

Please ensure that all contact details and student information is correct. 

If you need to update this, please contact Ustadha Aisha on 09 255 0904 or email 

Please do not be offended if we are unable to sign your child out because of incorrect details showing on their profile.


My child is away, what should I do?

If students are unable to attend school we require notification, by 9am, by a parent/caregiver via the Skool Loop App, email or phone call.

Please Note: Reporting an absence must come from the person nominated on your child's profile, not from the student themselves nor can we accept the reporting of an absence from contact details that do not match those of the nominated person.

The Skool Loop App is a secure way of ensuring only parents/caregivers are sending through the absence and it also keeps a track of what you have sent through.

If your child is not recorded as present in the first 2 periods of school, an automated text and email is sent to parents.  

My child feels unwell at school, what is the process?

If a student becomes sick during the day they must go to the office and they will decide if a parent needs to be contacted to come and take the child home.

Some students decide for themselves that they need to go home sick and phone parents directly, asking to be collected.  This is unsatisfactory and makes it very difficult for the school to keep a track of students’ whereabouts during the day, which we must do for their health and safety, if they have left the premises without following the correct procedure.

We ask parents to assist us in having their child follow the correct procedures regarding sickness at school.


I need my child to be released URGENTLY, what can be done?

If you need to sign your child out for an emergency during the day, please be aware that the office staff may not be able to get your child straight away. While they will do everything they can to help, it may take a little while.

If you anticipate needing to get your child out urgently it would be helpful to give at least half an hour notice. You can phone the school office on 09 255 0904.  Please do not turn up at the office and expect to be able to get your child out of class immediately.

The student must go to the office to sign out.

Please DO NOT send your child a text message and expect them to be let out of class and to leave the school grounds without following this process.


My child needs to leave school early, what is the process?

If your child needs to leave school early for an appointment the student must have an appointment card or a note signed by a parent/guardian and hands it in to the office. Please make note of the reason that the student will be leaving early and whether or not you expect them to return to school that day. For Health and Safety reasons this is a MUST.

Please note it is up to the Parents/Caregivers of the student to contact the school with the request to leave school early, if notice has not been provided the student will be told to return to their class.

Please DO NOT send your child a text message and expect them to be let out of class and to leave the school grounds without following this process.
