Leave of absence may only be granted by a person authorised in that behalf by the proprietor of the school. As from 1st September 2013, the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 amended Regulation 7 to prohibit the proprietor of a school from granting leave of absence to a pupil, except where an advance application has been made by the parent with whom the pupil normally resides, and the proprietor considers that there are exceptional circumstances relating to the application.
Taking your child out of school during term time could be detrimental to your child’s educational progress. There is no entitlement to parents to take their child out of school during term time, however, you may apply to the school for leave of absence if you believe there are exceptional circumstances.
If the absence is not authorised and the holiday is taken, the case will be referred to the Missing Education and Child Employment Service who may issue a Penalty Notice for £120 (or £60 if paid within 21 days) to each parent for each child taken out of school.
Please find some details below about 11+ mock exams we run in Southend and Rayleigh to help children in their preparation for the CSSE 11+ examination in September 2019. These may be of interest to some Year 5 pupils who may be thinking of sitting the exam this year. We will be holding seven mock exams, between March and September, and we have had a very positive response from both the parents and children who have taken part in them in past years.
This term we will be supporting the HARP Harvest Appeal 2017. A member of their team spoke to the whole school during assembly on Monday 18th September.
We are asking that families kindly donate food so that Southend’s homeless can benefit from hot meals, emergency packs and food parcels during the challenging winter months ahead.
Helping Parents to Help their Children
Primary to Secondary Transition
& 11+ Preparations
Multi-Academy Trust (MAT)
You may be aware from the press, every stand-alone academy, such as Hadleigh Junior School, is required to look at joining a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). In the last academic year the Department for Education required us to consider which MAT we felt was the best fit for Hadleigh Junior School.
Preparing for the 11+
Please find attached the end of year expectations for English. To be judged as meeting the expected standard for their year group, children need to be able to demonstrate each target across a variety of different types of writing, across the year. E.g a newspaper report, a descriptive story , instructions and an explanation text.
We have also attached the list of common exception words that you child needs to know how to spell by the end of each year.
If you have any questions about these, please see Mr Brierley who will be happy to explain in more detail.
Please enter our “PA school cashback code: HADLEIGH” during the order process.
Looking to name all of your belongings?
The Hadleigh Junior and Hadleigh Infants & Nursery School PAs are excited to announce
that we have teamed up with
to offer parents the opportunity to purchase quality labels for your children’s school uniform etc., whilst earning the school commission at the same time!
This money can then be used to continue to help purchase some of the fantastic resources that benefit our children’s learning.
As we all know, lost property is a problem in all schools and we are sure we are all familiar with our child, at some point, coming home from school with a missing item. As parents, we are aware that time is precious, which is why we think these “labels” are such a great idea;
Naming of clothing is a school requirement and we are hoping that with this opportunity we can start to eliminate some of parents’ frustrations that surround these issues.
