The Importance of Attendance During Term Time

Great Moor Junior School requests that parents avoid asking for days off school for their child as refusal often offends.

At Great Moor Junior School we are committed to promoting the welfare of our children through regular school attendance. We know that every day lost to education can have an impact on a child's attainment and progress in school. The link between good attendance and high levels of achievement is undeniable. Poor attendance and lateness may also be detrimental to the social adjustment and development of pupils.. We are therefore fully committed to promoting school attendance by providing an environment and ethos where all pupils feel safe and can build positive relationships with their peers. We expect that in return parents/carers ensure that children attend school and are punctual. Underpinning this policy is the belief that promoting good attendance is the responsibility of staff, parents and carers. We expect children to attend school every day and arrive on time.

Medical and Dental appointments

Parents and carers are requested wherever possible to try to arrange medical and dental appointments for outside of school hours, If on the rare occasion a medical appointment during school time is unavoidable, then we would ask that your child attends school beforehand and/or returns to school immediately that same day following their appointment. If a child is absent from school first thing in the morning or immediately after lunch then they cannot receive an attendance present mark for that session.

Leave of absence

Leave of absence may only be given in exceptional circumstances such as family bereavement, or for other legitimate reasons such as an interview at another school. The absence should be restricted to the minimum time required and parents are asked to request permission in advance by filling in the leave of absence form below.

Family Holidays

Parents should be aware that there is no right to time off for a family holiday.  Leave of absence for any reason is only granted in exceptional circumstances and is very unlikely to be granted for the purpose of a holiday.
