Good attendance links to the vision and values of our school.

Hummersea is a family. Together we believe, we achieve, we inspire. Here at Hummersea, be the best you can be!

Be respectful

Be enthusiastic

Be resilient

Be determined

Be proud

We are committed to meeting our obligation with regards to school attendance through our whole-school culture and ethos that values good attendance, including:

  • Promoting good attendance and punctuality
  • Reducing absence, including persistent and severe absence
  • Ensuring every pupil has access to the full-time education to which they are entitled
  • Acting early to address patterns of absence
  • Building strong relationships with families to ensure pupils have the support in place to attend school

As from September 2013, parents no longer have the right to request leave of absence for their children for an annual holiday. The amendments to the 2006 Pupil Registration Regulations make clear that Head teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

We do all we can to encourage children to attend, and to put in place appropriate procedures. We believe that the most important factor in promoting good attendance is the development of positive attitudes across school. To this end, we strive to make our school a happy and rewarding experience for all children. Please see below for further information in our attendance policy and Requests for School Leave during term time.

Lateness disrupts learning and where pupils are regularly arriving late to school it will be highlighted to the parent/carers via a phone call, letter or meeting. Support and advice is available from school via Miss K Whaley (Attendance Officer)/Mrs C Grainger (Head teacher/Attendance lead) on reducing lateness.
