Student Absences

In the circumstances of absence from school the following procedures need to be adhered to:

  • Not pre-approved: In the circumstances of absence from school which is not pre-approved, such as for illness or other pressing domestic situations, parents/carers should notify the College of the absence of their child by phoning the Administration Office. This must be followed by a note on the first day of the child’s return to school. Notification of reason for absence must be received by the College within 7 days.
  • Pre-approved: Parents/guardians should notify the college, where possible, prior to their child’s absence using Form B1 – Application for Exemption of Attendance at School (available on the College website).

Lateness to School

Punctuality is an important behaviour that is to be practiced at St Brigid’s. Any student arriving late to school, i.e. after the start of the first lesson, is asked to sign in at the front office.
