Britannia students are expected to attend classes 100% of the time.
There are four classes per day. (On Friday, there are 2 classes)
If a student comes to class more than 5 minutes after the class has started, the student cannot take the specific class. If a student comes within the first half of the class time but cannot take the class, we will regard it as a lateness not as an absence. (The student needs to stay at the school for next class). If a student is late for the class 3 times, Britannia College will consider it one single absence. If a student does not arrive at the school within this time period, or completely misses the class, we will consider it an absence.
We will count the number of class absences (not day absences) regardless of the total study period.
1st Absence > 2nd Absence > 3rd Absence > Dismissal (No refund)
If a student misses three classes without permission or notification, they will be dismissed without a refund or a diploma. (If a student misses an entire day of classes (four absences on a day), the student will be dismissed when he/she is late or absent next time.) A student cannot leave the classroom without the teacher’s permission.
If a student is going to be absent from a class, the student must discuss with the school staff to get permission first.
Proof of the reason for an absence may be requested.
Also, the student needs to bring reliable proof. The School will check or contact the person to prove. Personal reasons are not acceptable. Ex) Sickness – Doctor’s note (name of the clinic, Contact person, Phone number, Address…)
Absences due to any personal reasons or personal trips are not permitted.
Absences due to illness are acceptable and will not count against you. However, you must notify the school before 9am and you may be required to submit a doctor’s note or other proof of the reason for your absence. Unexcused absences totalling more than 15% of a student’s study period will result in no certificate/diploma being awarded.
Also, you need to submit reliable proof of your sickness with any letter, receipt or etc. Without submitting the proof if you just stay at home and are absent the classes more than 15% of your total period, you will not be eligible to get your certificate/diploma. You should be present more than 85% of the total period. (We will not count the days you submit the proof for.)
For example, without any proof if you miss more than 6 days you cannot get your diploma. (If you register 8weeks).
Students should allow for transportation delays, but if they are delayed on route they should call the school in order to avoid a possible late or absent mark. A student will still be asked to wait for the next class if more than 10 minutes late.
