Punctuality

Punctuality is a valuable skill that we instil in all our children from their first day. Parents and educators are vital role models in this regard by ensuring that they are always punctual. All latecomers have to report to the office in order to keep record of late attendance.

Absence

If your child has to miss school for illness, please notify the school with a phone call or email. On the return of the child, please send a sick note or explanatory letter with your child to school.

Security

Our main entrance has a buzzer gate (pin required) and CCTV cameras.

Aftercare

Aftercare is not provided by Kingdom Preparatory School but will be privately organized and available on the premises from 15h00 – 17h15.

We also incorporate the following
