Little OxBridge Learning Centre - Leave of Absence Policy

小牛橋教育中心-「請假及缺席措施」

Little OxBridge Learning Centre (LOB) believes that, as a responsible school, we have a duty to monitor attendance so that students can be supported to complete their programmes of study.

The Leave of Absence Policy of LOB has been developed as part of our commitment to providing a supportive learning environment. Students are expected to attend the enrolled classes. Parents/guardians are encouraged to notify Little Oxbridge Learning Centre (LOB) of pre-arranged absence as soon as the date of such appointments is known, by phone or the electronic form on our website (www.lob.hk). A note (LOB Note of Re-schedule of Lesson), where applicable, will be given in respect of the arrangement of the make-up lesson(s). Parents should provide the note to LOB’s staff on arrival for the make-up lesson(s). The purpose of this note is to determine whether or not the student's absence is excusable. This policy applies to all existing and new students of LOB and will be maintained until further notice is made.

EXCUSED ABSENCES Illness - When a student is unable to attend enrolled/scheduled class(es) due to illness, make up classes will be granted only on the recommended dates of the medical certificate.

Parents/guardians are required to inform LOB on the day of the absence and a LOB Note of Re-schedule of Lesson will be available to collect at LOB’s reception desk prior to the start of a re-scheduled class. Students should bring along the LOB Note of Re-schedule of Lesson when attending the make-up class(es). LOB reserves the right to retain or offer the seat to other students where necessary at its discretion. Pre-arranged absence - LOB may approve pre-arranged absence which is made 3 working days prior to the enrolled class. A LOB Note of Re-schedule of Lesson will be issued and available to collect at LOB’s reception desk prior to the re-scheduled class. Parents/guardians are reminded that ONLY “1 lesson” per “every 4 lessons enrolled” shall be entitled to LOB’s approved Leave of Absence .Pre-arranged absence with short notice- LOB will not approve any pre-arranged absences which are made less than 3 working days prior to the enrolled class and no later than the scheduled start time of the enrolled class. A LOB Note of Re-schedule of Lesson will be issued and available to collect at LOB’s reception desk prior to the re-scheduled class. Parents/guardians are reminded that no rescheduling of make-up classes (whether paid or unpaid) will be allowed in any circumstances.

UNEXCUSED ABSENCES Late Notification- We are afraid that any absence made after the enrolled class has started will not be accepted and NO make-up class will be arranged in such circumstances. Parents/guardians have the responsibility to keep a record of the students’ class schedules and to ensure that students attend the classes in a timely manner. No make- up class will be arranged for any absence or tardiness due to circumstances which are by no indication caused by LOB, such as unexpected traffics or illness without a doctor’s note. Unexcused Absences No make-up class will be arranged for any circumstances where parents/guardians fail to notify LOB, or no indication has been received by LOB personnel, of the students’ absence prior to the start of any scheduled lesson. LOB reserves the right to refuse any make-up classes to students who fail to produce a LOB Note of Re-schedule of Lesson, and to make final decision in cases of disputes. LOB’s Severe Weather Arrangement remains in force and therefore any absence due to the conditions stated in the LOB Severe Weather Arrangement will not be affected by LOB Leave of Absence Policy.
