Absentieeism

  • The learner who is absent from school, on his return, must produce a letter written by his parent /guardian to the form teacher.
  • This letter is filed by the form teacher into the Learner’s Profile.
  • Irregular attendance is monitored by the form teacher every month.
  • Learners with irregular attendance will be issued with a letter which is to be completed by the parent/guardian and sent back to the form teacher to be filed.
  • A follow – up will be done by the form teacher, if no response is received via the letter.
  • The follow – up can take one of following forms, a telephonic conversation with the parents or an SGB member to investigate the case.

Tardiness

Parents, it is imperative that you send your child to school on time. If for any valid reason your child cannot be at school on time, bring your child to school at the later time and report to the office.

Late coming is a serious transgression. Learners arriving late disrupt learning and teaching. It also impacts negatively on their own academic well-being.

Late arrival is not acceptable in the workplace and we will most certainly not cultivate a culture of late–coming in this school. Should your child make use of public transport, we request that you have a meeting with your child’s transport provider.

You as parent/guardian pay substantial fees for transport and have the right to expect that your child arrives at school on time.
