Attendance

For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential. 
 
Attendance Targets 
Children at Moorpark Junior School are encouraged to achieve a 95% or higher attendance figure. Exceptional circumstances such as serious medical conditions are taken into consideration. 
 
Attendance Awards 
Attendance is encouraged within school through the use of attendance awards and incentives. These are issued on a weekly, ½ termly and end of year basis for both individual attendance and year group attendance. 
 
Absence Procedures 
A first day of absence contact system is in place where the Admin Manager contacts parents and ascertains the reasons for any absences, if not already known. 
 
The attendance rate of any child causing concern will be investigated. If poor attendance is significant, parents will be contacted by letter asking them to meet  with a school representative to discuss the issue. If no improvement is secured the matter will be referred to the Educational Welfare Office. Children in this category will be placed on the school ‘ At Risk Register’. 
 
All ‘At Risk’ pupils will be issued with an individual Pupil Profile and supporting Action Plan. 
 
The L.A. are notified of all ‘At Risk’ pupils on a ½ termly basis. 
 
Term time absence 
Holidays in term time can not be authorised.
Permission for term time absence will only be authorised if there is exceptional circumstances. A request form must be submitted to the Headteacher via the school office with full details of the exceptional reasons why a child needs to be absent from school. The Headteacher will respond to all requests.  
 
Absence codes 
All absences will be recorded on school registers using the national codes attached. Any pupil who is on roll but not present in school must be recorded within one of these categories: 
  1. Unauthorised Absence – This is for pupils where no reason has been given or whose absence is deemed to be  without valid reason. 
  2. Authorised Absence – This is for those pupils who are away from school for a reason that is deemed to be valid under the Education Act 1996. 
  3. Approved Educational Activity – This covers types of supervised educational activity undertaken offsite but with the  approval of the school.
