General Information

Attendance and Punctuality

Every child's good attendance and punctuality matters to us at Stalyhill Junior School. Our school target for attendance is 97% and individual attendance which falls below 94% is carefully monitored. Children whose attendance falls below 90% are classed as "Persistent Absentees" by the Department for Education.

Please note we do not authorise absence for holidays taken during term time.



Head Lice

We are aware that head lice can affect children of primary school age at home and in school. Our school policy sets out the duties and responsibilities of parents, carers and the school in dealing with head lice. It also provides some practical advice as to how to tackle head lice.


The advice we give about common illness: 

  • Do not allow your child to return to school until 48 hours have passed since their last episode of diarrhoea and vomiting.

  • If your child has chicken pox, inform school and keep them at home while they are infectious, which is until the last blister has burst and crusted over. This usually takes five or six days after the rash begins.

Further information can be obtained from the School Office.


Arrangements for all medicines within school must be discussed with a member of staff. Parents must complete the Stalyhill Junior School medicine administering form for medication which has been prescribed by a doctor. Medicine cannot be administered without this form being completed (see below).

Smokefree Policy

At Stalyhill Junior School we operate a Smokefree Policy. This policy prohibits smoking throughout all our school grounds and around the school gates at all times. This policy applies to all school events and activities before and after school, and when pupils are taken off site for school trips.

Our school uniform is important to us. It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it  supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life.

Please see the Uniform policy below for further details.

Your Views

Each March we ask all parents and children to complete a questionnaire. The outcomes provide us with valuable information about:

  • our areas of strength
  • our areas for development
  • any ideas you have to improve the school

Please see the results of our latest questionnaire (March 2023) below.
