Parents are requested to promptly pick-up their children after school. Entry into the School is controlled and no unauthorized individual shall be permitted to enter the school premises. All visitors will be carefully scrutinized and should carry an exit pass, after which the child will be allowed to leave with them.

Expected attendance in the Primary School is five days a week (Sunday to Thursday) from 7:50 AM to school dispersal. Exceptions are made for the Foundation Stage settling period. Teachers will discuss this with the parents when the child starts schooling. As per the UAE Ministry of Education Regulations, Grade-2 and above students who miss 25 days or more in any school year may be at risk of not being promoted to the next year unless they have been legitimately excused from school as a result of special request.

These special requests must be clearly communicated and agreed upon with the principal prior to the absenteeism. Examples include extra-curricular participation or extended illness. Excused and unexcused absences are recorded in each student’s individual records and reports. If your child is ill, please notify the school in the morning of each day of absenteeism, either by an email or calling the main reception.

At The Apple International School, Dubai the uniform is worn with pride. It is an outward sign of the choice that students have made to join the community and a way to demonstrate daily their commitment to fully embrace the values and spirit of the school. A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students at all times. We seek co-operation from the parents in maintaining these standards. Parents have a responsibility to send their children to school well dressed and ready for their daily school work.
