Shiplake has a number of policies which are regularly reviewed. The most important of these can be found below. A full list of College policies is available on request from the School Office, as are hard copies of individual policies or inspection reports. All policies and documents are reviewed annually. This annual review is to be completed by 31 October each new academic year.
Leave of Absence
Parents/guardians should use the iSAMS Parent Portal to request planned Leave of Absence during term time (including any Saturdays when pupils would be expected such as sports fixtures/training or open mornings). The 'Leave Request' page can be found on the Parent Portal as one of the main menu options. This form must be submitted at least seven days in advance of any planned absence from school. You will receive an email confirmation of the request being made and then an email stating whether or not the request has been approved in due course. Please contact the Data Manager, Mrs Hanna Edimoh, if you have any issues accessing the Parent Portal ([email protected]). If your child will be absent from school unexpectedly, ie for illness, please email his or her Housemaster and Matron directly.
If pupils have an appointment and need to leave school, parents should contact the Housemaster in advance by email. If a pupil leaves before 4.30pm they must sign out at Reception and sign in upon their return. After this time they are expected to sign out with the Duty Tutor. Boarders must report to the Duty Tutor before leaving the house between 6.45pm and 9.00pm. Pupils must sign out after that time and report back in on their return.
