Attendance Policy


Good attendance at school is the key foundation to your son achieving in Coláiste Mhichíl. As a DEIS school, we take attendance very seriously. We strive to ensure that each of our students has as close to full attendance as possible.

We have weekly Junior and Senior attendance meetings where Year Heads, DEIS Coordinator, Deputy Principal, Principal, and HSLO sit down and review each student’s attendance. Measures are then put in place to address attendance issues where they might arise.

Promotion of attendance is a key trait of our school and we place a massive emphasis on recognising good attendance. We give vouchers for weekly full attendance and term attendance. Attendance records are given to parents at PTMs.

For a full understanding of our approach to attendance please refer to our attendance policy below.
