Absences

If a student is absent through illness or another reason her parent/guardian is to ring or email the College answer phone in the morning(s) before 8.45am.

A note may be requested if parents cannot be contacted on the day of the absence.

If a student feels ill during the day she must see the School Nurse (who is also the Attendance Registrar). The Nurse will contact the caregiver and ensure that the student signs out at the Office before she goes home.

Unless the student has prior approval, no student is to leave school or ring her parents to collect her without permission from the School Nurse.

If a student has a doctor or dentist appointment she must bring a note from a parent to the Form Teacher. The Form Teacher signs the note which the student must present to the Office when she signs out.

Other absence requests, e.g. half day, go via the Form Teacher to the Dean who may discuss with the Head of School.

For anticipated absences of one day, or more, prior written approval must be obtained from the Principal by the parents. If approval is given, this will be confirmed by letter or email from the Principal.

If a student is late in Period 1 she must report to Reception before coming to class. She must only be admitted to class with a late slip from Reception.
