All pupils must attend school regularly and punctually; this is very important as the local welfare department frequently checks school registers. If a pupil is absent for any reason, a letter signed by the parents / guardian must be sent to the school on her return or as soon as possible after that.
In order to not disrupt the pupils’ education unnecessarily, parents are urged to make medical appointments for their daughters after school hours whenever possible. Overseas and family holidays must not be organised during term time.
Guidance for parents
The Governors and the school staff would appreciate it if the parents and pupils support the school and its aims in every respect. BIGS can only improve standards through the co-operation of all concerned.
A few additional points:
Please remember that BIGS is only responsible for the well-being and whereabouts of its pupils during normal school hours (i.e. from 8.35am to 3.10pm).
Please read this Spotlight on Attendance letter for more information.
