Mosborough Primary School

Through Inspired Learning We Achieve Our Dreams


Our school attendance target is 97%.



Each week, during Monday assembly, we award our Attendance prize to the class with the highest attendance that week. The winning class is able to choose a reward.



School starts at 8.50am and doors are opened at 8.40am.

The school promotes good punctuality through our 'Early Bird' reward scheme. On random days, children arriving before the 8.50am buzzer will receive a raffle ticket. The tickets are put into a prize draw and the lucky winner receives a gift token.



Parents/carers are asked to notify the school office before 9am if their child is going to be absent from school. If a child is absent without a reason, parents/carers will be notified by text or telephone. Alternatively, please complete the absence form below and your notification will be emailed to the school.


Term Time Leave

Our new Term Time Leave Policy takes effect from September 2013.  In accordance with Government legislation, leave during term time can no longer be authorised unless considered an exceptional circumstance.


In line with Sheffield Local Authority’s policy on term time leave, our Family of Schools has agreed that any unauthorised holidays/term time leave taken which spans 5 or more consecutive days will be subject to a fixed penalty notice of £60 if paid before 21 days, and £120 if paid between 21 and 28 days.


Please remember that all holiday/term time leave requests need to be made in writing using our leave of absence request form available from the school office or our website.  Requests must be submitted 20 days before the start of the planned holiday.

Please see the letter from all Headteachers in our family.
