For Parents


Children get the best possible start in life when they attend school on time every day. Children who miss school frequently are more likely to fall behind.

By law, parents and carers must ensure their children attend school. Parents can be fined if they fail to ensure that their child attends school regularly.

Children sometimes have to miss school because of illness or if they have long term medical issues. If this is the case, parents should contact school the same day to let us know the reason that their child is not in school. 

At Hovingham, improving attendance is everyone’s business and we work with parents/carers  to ensure that all pupils are encouraged and supported to attend school regularly., as are aiming for over 96% whole school attendance.

We ask all parents to sign a parent pledge around supporting your child to attend school.

We work with parents to help form good habits for good school attendance.
