Absence

Unplanned / emergency absence

Please email a detailed reason for absence to absence@britishschoolmuscat.com before 8:00am each day of your child’s absence. Please include in your email:

  • The name and class of your child
  • The reason for your child’s absence from school (eg: sickness)
  • A centrally generated email will be sent to parents of pupils with any unreported absence.

Planned absence

Request and notification of any planned absence must be sent to the appropriate school office (Primary or Senior) for authorisation from the Head of School.

Signing out/Early release

If you wish to take your child out of school early, then you will need to notify the Head of School in advance. Students must report to the main reception for an exit slip in order to leave school.

Signing in/Late arrival

Students returning to school must follow the lateness procedure and sign in at the main reception on entering school grounds.

Parents Travelling

If parents plan to be away from home for any length of time, please inform the Primary or Senior Office via email. Particularly in the Primary School, it is helpful to know who is collecting your child if there is a change in routine. If both parents are away it is vital that we receive written confirmation of dates and the name and contact details of the person who will be the acting parent, prior to your departure. This person will be the school’s point of contact in the event of an accident or emergency within school and will be expected to make decisions on your behalf.
