Absence from School

We expect our students to attend school except for the following reasons: illness, medical care, injury or other emergencies, activities or events beyond parental control. It is not considered appropriate for students to miss school to meet or see friends and relatives who are arriving in or leaving Bahrain. Similarly, it is not appropriate to excuse your children from school to accommodate flights. Flights should be booked to coincide with the published school holidays.

If your child is unwell and unable to attend school, please inform our Infants’ School Office (attendance@thebsbh.com).

Home / School Communication

We firmly believe that regular, open communication between parents and teachers has a key role to play in your child’s development. We schedule parent/teacher meetings each term to discuss progress on an individual basis. Extensive written reports are sent home at the end of the school year. However, if you have any slight concerns (and nothing is too trivial!), please do not hesitate to make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher at any point during the year. You can arrange an appointment with the teacher in person, via email or via The Infants’ School Office.

Healthy Snacks

Children should bring a small lunch to school each day. This should be as healthy as possible, perhaps including a sandwich, juice, fruit, vegetables or a cereal bar. Sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks should not be sent to school. Snacks should be brought to school in a back pack or small bag. Large trolley type bags are not allowed.
