All children are expected to be on time for learning each morning. They are encouraged to be at school at least 15 minutes before the start of learning time, as this allows them to get organized for the day and catch up with their friends.

If children are absent from school for any reason it is expected that the school will be notified that day by 9am. If there is no notification, the school office staff will contact families to ensure this is supposed to be the case and the child is safe.

Tauriko School discourages holidays during school terms as there is sufficient holiday time during term breaks for family holidays. Time away from school also interferes with school learning opportunities for students. If children are off school for this reason it is expected that parents/caregivers will inform the school in writing prior to this happening in order that records are kept as required for MOE audits.
