NB: Students will be marked as ‘late’ after 07.15. Students are to be collected at 14.00
If students are late for school, i.e. arrive after 7.20, they must report to Reception, which is accessible via Gate 2.
Our Reception staff will then ensure that the class register is updated and they are marked as Present.
If a student is marked as Absent (without a reason provided for their absence) an SMS will be sent to parents as part of our safeguarding process. Please reply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org providing the reason for absence. This will then be updated on our daily attendance system.
OIS is very inclusive, it is a community where the faculty, students and parents interact and respect each other.
