Parents should endeavour to inform the school either by telephone, fax or email before 9.30am if their child is not attending school. If your child is absent from school and it is at all possible please send a note explaining the absence to the class teacher on the child's return.

We will contact you if your child is not in school and we do not have a reason for his/her absence. Parents are advised avoid booking holidays during the school term. Not more than one week of absence may be granted in any calendar year for children accompany parents on family holidays. A form requesting leave of absence must be obtained from the office at least two weeks before the holiday.

Late Collection

School time is 7.25am to 2.30pm for children who are not in the extra lesson or school club. The school will not take responsibility for any child that is not collected by 3.00pm. Such parents will be surcharged after two chances. For the safety of our children extra hand services are engaged to take care of this sort of circumstance and they will have to be paid for complementing the safety of our children.

Walk Home Alone Policy

Under our policy, no child will be allowed to leave the school unless accompanied by an adult. Danbo international school is situated in a residential area of Barnawa and as such parents may wish that their child/children walk to school and back alone. For safety regulations such wishes will need to be entered and signed in our consent form, which can be collected from the head teacher.
