Time of arrival at school
At Beldon Primary School we encourage children to arrive at school after 8.20am. Children who do arrive before this time are to come directly to the atrium area and remain there until they are released at 8.20am.

School starting time is 8.40am Monday to Friday.
School finishing time is 3.00pm Monday to Friday.

Attendance
WA regulations state that parents must ensure their child attends school. When children are enrolled in the school, admission and family cards are prepared. These include addresses and phone numbers in case of emergency. Please ensure that this information is kept up to date. Birth certificates and immunisation cards need to be sighted on enrolment. Legal custody arrangements need to be shown to the Principal and kept up to date.

Absences
Parents are required to provide a written explanation each and every time their child is absent from school. A note explaining their absence which clearly states the day(s) on which the child was absent should be given to their teacher on the day the child returns to school. Alternatively, a verbal absentee can be given to your child’s teacher or by ringing the school. A medical certificate may be required to explain prolonged absences.

Leaving the school grounds
Children are not allowed to leave the school grounds without permission from the school and parent. Before taking children out of the school during school hours, the accompanying adult is required to collect an acknowledgement slip from the office.
