Henderson Primary School places a high value on attendance at school.  We know the first barrier to learning at school  is attendance. Continuous absence seriously affects children’s learning.  Poor attendance results in poor progress. 

If your child is to be absent from school for any reason please let the office know at the earliest possible time. Please text on 027 758 6191 or leave a message on the answer phone 838 9667 Also, you can email or use our SKOOL LOOP app.

A member of the office staff will phone you if we have not been advised of your childs absence. 

We monitor the attendance of those few children who are frequently absent or late to school.  Parents are contacted when either of these becomes a problem, and we may advise the Waitakere Truancy Office.
