Attendance

It is through good attendance that pupils maximise their full potential, enhancing their life chances for the future. Missing school means missing out on learning and this can have an impact on a child’s development and attainment. There is a strong statistical link between attendance and attainment.

The law states that children of statutory school age who are on roll at a school or academy must attend regularly and punctually. Regular attendance is important, because it is the best way of ensuring children make the most of the educational opportunities available to them.

 

Attendance Matters:

  = number of days absent Approximate number of weeks = number of lessons missed
90% 19 days 4 weeks 114 lessons
85% 29 days 6 weeks 174 lessons
80% 38 days 8 weeks 228 lessons

If your child is unwell or unable to attend school, please call our absence line on 01582 760043 (selecting option 1) by 8.45am on each day of absence.

Parent information leaflet

 

Medical appointments:

Please notify all medical appointments, prior to the day of the appointment, via email to Attendance@sjl.herts.sch.uk

Should your child require medication during the school day, the following form must be completed and handed to Reception along with the medicine.

Parental agreement medicine form

 

Leave of absence request:

As a parent/guardian you are strongly urged to avoid booking holidays during term time. If it is absolutely unavoidable, you should complete this form and return it to the Attendance Officer.
