Reporting an Absence

Somerville Intermediate operates a "check safe" system. If your child is absent or late for any reason, the school office MUST be notified, not the classroom teacher, in order to assist the effective operation of this system.


Please report an absence/lateness by downloading the @school app via the parent portal page, as it transfers the information directly into our school database. Please provide your child's name, room number and the reason for their absence or lateness. 


You can also report an absence by phoning the school on 535 1070. Press 2 to record the absence.


If your child does not arrive at school and you have not notified us of their absence, we will firstly text, then phone you. Please be aware that if there is no response, your child will be marked as truant.


All students must sign in at the office if they are late to school and sign out if leaving the school grounds, for any reason, during the day. Students MUST be accompanied by a parent/caregiver when leaving the school grounds.


Please advise the school office by phoning 535 1070 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.of any change of contact details.
