ABSENTEE PROCEDURE

Details to be confirmed.

ABSENT FOR AN ASSESSMENT

Learners are not allowed to go home immediately after a test if they are ill. They have to stay until first break.

  • NO learner will be allowed to go home early on any day or after a test without a written letter from the parent requesting this. No emails will be accepted.
  • Permission to go home early will only be allowed in the case of an emergency.
  • If a learner is too ill to stay for the full day after a test, then they must not come to school to write.
  • In case of absenteeism a medical certificate or relevant chemist slip must be provided.

PLEASE NOTE:

All learners are required to be at school at the regular time - 07h50 - even if they are not writing a test. This time will be used for academic consolidation or tasks organised by various subject departments.

All parents are asked to be aware that when a child misses a Monday or a Thursday test, a certificate from the clinic, a doctor’s certificate or a relevant chemist slip is required. The date on the chemist slip and medication bought must pertain to the pupil’s absenteeism.

A medical certificate from either the clinic or the doctor is applicable for missing any exam.

No exceptions will be made for learners who miss formal assessments owing to holiday arrangements.

Grade 9 and Matric pupils must produce a doctor’s certificate for tests and exams missed as these are the two exit phases and the marks are externally moderated by the Education Department.

LEARNERS LEAVING EARLY

If a learner feels too sick to continue the school day or have to leave for an appointment, he/she must adhere to the following “sign-out procedure”:

  1. The learner must report to the DCR (Discipline Control Room) to obtain a “sign-out form”. This form is taken to all the teaching staff to sign and acknowledge that he/she will not be in class for the lesson. If a test or any other assessment activity is scheduled, the staff member may request the learner to be present for the lesson.
  2. Please note that reception will contact parents/guardians to fetch learners and that this arrangement should not be made by the learners. It is also important that parents allow for enough time for the process (explained above) to be followed.
  3. After the necessary documentation has been signed, learners will be signed out at reception by their guardian/parent who has arrived to fetch them.
  4. t is advised that, should parents/learners be aware that they have scheduled an appointment, the learners arrange/fetch the necessary documentation timeously - i.e. earlier in the day.
  5. Please note that learners are not allowed to leave the school’s premises or class without following procedure or before the necessary documentation has been completed.

SCHOOL TIMES

School will commence at 07h50 and end each day at 14h35

NB: There may be occasions when pupils will be required to stay up to ten minutes later without prior warning.
