Absence reporting

When your child is absent from school due to illness or doctor visit etc, please make sure to inform the school ahead of time. You can now do this easily through the Parro app.  Alternatively you can of course email the teacher or call us before 8.15am on +31 23 303 5924.

It is important to notify us in case of illness or a sudden visit to the dentist or doctor. The school is required by law to record the reason(s) for any students absence.

Applications for leave of absence

Consistent daily school attendance for children between the ages of 5 and 16 is compulsory in the Netherlands and necessary to ensure academic progress. It is assumed that parents comply with the standard school holidays. Any extension of holidays will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. Special leave may be granted under article 11 of the Education Act 1969.
