Our commitment to improving attendance
As part of Leigh Academies Trust, Molehill Primary Academy is committed to improving the attendance of all of our pupils.
The former post of Education Welfare Officer (EWO) has been replaced with the post of Designated School Liaison Officer. These officers will work closely with schools and academies to address occurrences of low attendance. Part of the change involves bringing in earlier referrals to the Early Help Workers for families where attendance is below expectations and where no improvement in attendance has been seen.
As an academy, we have also reviewed our systems and arrangements for dealing with attendance issues. Mrs Hammond our Pastoral Support Worker will focus on working with identified families to improve both attendance and punctuality within the academy.
If your child is unable to come to school you MUST report this to reception, in person, by telephone, text or email on the morning of absence. If you fail to do this, absence will be recorded as unauthorised. All unauthorised absence will be addressed and a Penalty Notice will be requested when 5 days/10 sessions of unauthorised absence is reached. Please contact Mrs Hammond if there are circumstance that affect your child’s attendance.
Please find updated attendance information on the link below.
In July we celebrated the success of all the children who had excellent attendance throughout the year and during the summer term. 19 children attained 100% attendance for the full year and enjoyed a special treat of making their own ice cream sundae at the Ice Cream Parlour.
Over half the children attended school over 96% of the year and had the opportunity to win prizes in a prize draw. Prizes included family tickets to the Rare Breeds Centre, gift voucher to Gravity, DVD, Harry Potter goodie bag and many more.
See our great results in the presentation below.

Every school day counts!
This year pupils can earn HOUSE POINTS for attending school regularly. 100% attendance, excellent attendance and most improved attendance will all be recognised at the end of each full term.

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.
