In terms of punctuality, we expect that students arrive in good time for school every morning. This means that they should be on site by 8.35am at the latest, and parents are requested to ensure that students get to school by this time. Lateness will result in sanctions being applied.

In regard to holidays in term time, parents are requested to avoid such requests.

Absence During Term Time

Any student who takes unauthorised absence from school within term time will be at risk of losing their school place at Derby Moor Academy. Parents/carers will need to re-apply for a place via the Local Authority Admissions Department. Please be aware that significant waiting lists are currently in existence for all Year Groups.
