Attendance and Punctuality

Missing School

Good attendance and punctuality are vital if pupils are to achieve their maximum potential. Ecclesall C/E Junior School is committed to working with parents/carers and pupils to ensure that each pupil benefits from the academic, personal and social opportunities available to them during their years with us.

Lateness and loss of school days contributes to children feeling “out of place”  in their friendship groups or “behind” in their learning; as they may have missed an important experience. At Ecclesall CE Junior School we pride ourselves on our high attendance.

We ask that parents do not take holiday in term time and that appointments where possible are made after 3.30 pm.

We aim to work with parents/carers to develop good habits of punctuality and encourage ‘self’ responsibility.

We are, therefore, committed to a whole school approach to attendance and a partnership relationship with parent/carers.
