Attendance and Absence
Question: A student rings the departmental office asking what they should do about missing lectures and classes through illness. What should I advise?
Question: I have a problem with a member of one of my seminar groups. She has been missing for three classes in a row. I have emailed her to ask why, but she has not replied. What action should I take?
Question: One of my students has told me about some family problems which means she needs to be away from Sheffield every weekend. Lately things have become even more difficult at home and she now thinks she will often need to miss classes during the week. She is worried about getting behind in her course and wonders what options are open to her.
