Learners may be absent from school for illness or emergency reasons only. Parents or Guardians must explain absenteeism, in writing in emergency cases on the day of the students return; otherwise they need a pre approval from the Head of the school for the planned absences.  Learners must enquire from their teachers what work has been missed while being absent, and are then responsible for catching up that work.

  1. School attendance is compulsory.
  2. Learners will attend school from the first until the last school day of each term.
  3. A doctor’s certificate is required if a learner is absent for medical reasons.    
  4. On the first day of the child’s return after a period of absence from school, a signed letter stating the reason for having being absent is required from the parent or guardian.
  5. More than 4 days of absence in a term will lead to a meeting with the parents to sign a pledge of ensuring that student will not be absent from the school. 
  6. Students who are absent for more than 18 days in the school year will not be allowed to sit the final exams.
  7. Students who are absent for more than 18 days of the school year with administrative approval will have to sit for a diagnostic exam to demonstrate their ability to progress to the next year group. Students who do not pass this exam will not be offered a place in the next year group and will repeat the previous year. 

  8. The official school day starts at 7:00 a.m. and finishes at 2:00 pm for Years 7 to 12 except on Monday, school day finishes at 12:00pm. 

  9. The school gates will open at 6:15 a.m. Students have to be at school before 7:00 a.m. every day. The school duty starts at 6.30 a.m. so no student will be supervisedbefore that time and no child is allowed to enter the school after 7:20 a.m unless the parents have informed the lateness of the student prior to her arrival to the school. (please check lateness policy mentioned later in this Handbook)

  10. Secondary students who are late for class 3 times will get a break detention the next day. 

  11. School finishes at 2:00 p.m. No students are allowed to stay in the school after 2:30 p.m. as there will be no supervision for the students after 2:30 p.m.

  12. Students are required to purchase and wear school ID while in school or attending any school function or trip. School ID cards are also used to issue library and text books. Parents must present their copy of the ID card to security when coming to collect their child. Parents who do not present the student ID will be asked for their Qatari ID card and will have to wait while the authorized person to collect the student from school is verified. (As far as possible it should be arranged that all doctor, dental or other specialist appointments be booked for after school hours or during holidays.)
