Well done to Mr Lomax's Class with 99% Attendance!  Keep it up!

Remember, we are all aiming for a minimum of 98% attendance here at Hamer. If we are in school, we are learning!

In order for your child to do their very best, it is important that attendance and punctuality is excellent.  Lost time cannot be made up and school expects the support of parents and carers in ensuring that children always attend school.

 

There will, of course, be rare times when children are unwell or have health appointments and therefore won’t be in school. However, school must be told of the reason for these absences, either in writing or by phone on 655756. The school office is open from 8.00am to receive phone calls. If your child is not in school and we have not had prior notification of the reason for their absence you will be contacted that morning by Mrs Flynn to provide a reason. As you know we work very closely with the Education Welfare Service to ensure that our attendance is at least 97% across school. Where children and/or families are identified as causing concern for attendance or punctuality the support of the Education Welfare Service will be sought.

 

We are aware that some families have made requests in the past for children to go on extended visits during school time. The school is working extremely hard to ensure that children are in school on time and every day. Whilst we do realise the very positive contribution that these visits make to children’s lives, the Governors have decided that requests for extended visits during term time will not be authorised by the school. In addition, if parents do take their children out of school and therefore have an unauthorised absence, the school will refer this immediately to the Education Welfare Service. This could result in a child being removed from the school register and/or the parent/carer being subject to a fixed penalty notice fine.
