Bolsover Church of England Junior School



 Our Attendance Lead in school is Mrs Slaney.

Please follow this link to read our Attendance Policy. We have a new one coming in Autumn 2019. Once this has been authorised by governors, we will share this with parents.


We adhere to the Local Authority guidance when dealing requests for term-time holidays or other leave of absence requests.


If your child fails to attend school, or you take your child out of school during term-time without authorisation from Mrs Bailey/Mr Backhouse, you may be prosecuted in court through the issuing of a Penalty Notice. Holiday request and Leave of Absence Forms can be found in the school reception area.
