Legally, all children aged between five and 16 must receive a full-time education, and it is the parent/carers responsibility for making sure this happens.


At Hamsey School we are dedicated to providing the best opportunities for every child in our care, so we believe it is vital for good attendance. 


Did you know - 

  • in a year, there are just 190 school days? 175 days set aside for family holidays, days out and weekends.
  • 5 days of school equates to 25 hours of learning
We monitor attendance closely and understand from time to time it is necessary for a child to be absent due to sickness or exceptional circumstances.
We hope that if you are experiencing problems getting your child to school or there are other issues, please do contact the school and discuss it with us.
