The West Australian Police will be commencing an initiative with all schools in the metropolitan area to help improve school attendance and increase the safety of students in our communities. Any students located by police during school hours, outside school grounds, who are not accompanied by an adult, or do not have a leave pass, will be returned to their enrolled school.
If your child is collected by police and returned to school, a staff member from the school will call to inform you. Parents will be given the location where their child was found and the details of the police officer who returned them. There will be a police contact number for parents if there are any concerns.
This initiative will commence Term 3, 2012. We encourage parents to support schools and police in improving student attendance and ensuring all children are safe
