Lubavitch Junior Girls School


Regular attendance at school promotes pupils’ well-being and gives them the best chance of learning and reaching their potential. Pupils should attend school every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.


Good attendance is important because pupils:

  • get on better with learning and other children;
  • cope better with school routines, work and friendships;
  • find learning easier because they do not miss out;
  • are more successful moving between primary school, secondary school, higher education and employment or training;
  • are known to be safe and well by us.


Research shows a direct link between high attendance and doing well at school. All children have the right to an education. We encourage and expect 100% attendance for all pupils. 




We all know that attendance and marks are related to each other. At LPGS, we take punctuality and attendance seriously. 

Absence in Term Time

All family holidays must be taken during school holiday times. Absences during term time will only be approved in exceptional circumstances.

Absence in term time request form.


Medical Appointments

Dental and medical appointments should be made outside school hours where possible. If medical appointments need to take place during school hours, please request leave of absence in writing as soon as possible.

If your child has a series of medical appointments, it is helpful if these can be arranged on different days and times, so that the same lesson is not always missed. In the case of hospital appointments we will need to see a copy of the hospital letter.

Bad Weather Arrangements

During bad weather periods please assume that the school is open. In the event of closure parents will be notified by the school Text System and Emails.
