School policy on absence for an NCEA internal
Please note that if your son is absent for reasons beyond his control (e.g. accident, illness, bereavement), where feasible, the student will be allowed to attempt the assessment or a full reassessment opportunity will be available. If an assessment task is missed then independent documentation (i.e. medical certificate, etc) must be supplied.
Similarly for any school authorised absence for out of class activities such as EOTC trips, sporting and cultural fixtures, involving representation of the College and representation at a national level the absences will be considered legitimate and the student, where feasible, will be allowed to attempt the assessment or a full further assessment opportunity will be available. Full details are in the booklet issued to students in Term One- NQF Faculty policies and Procedures, Information for Students and Parents.
