Notice of Absence:
Any absence from class (sick leave, early leave, late) should be reported to school before 8:10am by sending an email to the House email address. We would greatly appreciate the following information:
- Student’s Full Name:
- Year & Tutor Group:
- Date of absence:
House absence email addresses are:
firstname.lastname@example.org – Crozier
email@example.com – Nightingale
firstname.lastname@example.org – Rowell
email@example.com – Upsdell
After receiving the email, school office will then authorize the absence record on the LIONeL system. Any absence not reported to school will result in an automatic system reminder sent to parents’ email inbox, and may result in the mark of “unauthorized absence” on the student’s attendance record.
For Planned Absence: 90% attendance is a KGV expectation. Where parents need to take students out of school they MUST inform the school in advance of this absence. Where the period of planned absence is to exceed 3 days, parents must complete the KGV Planned Absence form (click here for copy). The form must be completed BEFORE the leave of absence starts and Heads of House will consider the need for this absence and decide on whether approval is to authorised. Students must contact teachers in advance to gather work missed during this period.
For Early Leave (i.e During the School Day): Parents are encouraged to pick up students with prior notice to the School. Please notify the school by sending an email to the above House absence email addresses with the necessary details. The ONLY exception is in the case of emergency (e.g. family emergency) when of course parents may need to come directly into School.
Parents are requested to use email rather than phone or come in person. This would be very helpful in ensuring we can account for our students, plan work and activities accordingly and maintain an audit trail. We do our very best to try and make sure our students are safe, communications with parents are clear and absence requests are handled smoothly. We ask for your understanding that, with the volume of communications and tempo of operations a School of this size generates, your cooperation makes a huge difference to our ability to administer the School efficiently.
