Welcome to Great Moor Junior School

 

Welcome

Great Moor Junior School is a co-educational community Junior School and our pupils are with us for four years (Years 3 – 6).  During this time we hope to make learning fun and enjoyable for  everyone, helping children to become enthusiastic and confident in their learning, developing a wide range of skills and knowledge as well as a positive attitude.

We consider our school to be a team in which everyone has an important role to play: governors, staff, parents and children working together to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for our children.

We hope you find the information on this website useful.  If you would like the opportunity to visit our school you are very welcome to come and have a look around – please phone on 0161 483 4987 to make arrangements.

If you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to meeting you.

School Attendance/Term Time Absence Requests

Our attendance is mostly very good but there are occasions when a child may be unwell and parents feel they would be better kept at home. If your child is unwell and not attending school please phone to let us know (0161 483 4987) before 9 am when the day’s registers are completed. Alternatively an e-mail to admin@greatmoor-jun.stockport.sch.uk or a text to 07597 274702 will work just as well. Please let us know each and every day your child is not in school.

Many thanks to those who always ensure their children are in on time each day, it is most beneficial for the children to arrive at school at 8.45 each day then they are able to take part in MAD (Make A Difference) time.

We do sometimes receive requests from parents for an absence from school due to special family circumstances or to facilitate a family holiday that runs into term time. Only a Headteacher can authorise an absence and whilst we would like everyone to be in every day, we appreciate that family events are very important and know our parents generally only ask in exceptional circumstances. Each request is considered carefully, taking into account a range of factors including the child’s regular attendance rates. We have, on occasion, received notification from parents telling us they will be going away (or have been away). Unless permission is sought and given in advance then these absences will be unauthorised which could lead to the Local Authority fining parents.
