Absence Reporting Procedures

If you need to report that your child is absent from school, please use the information below to help you.

You can report an absence via email or the Class Charts parent/ carer App. You must email attendance@thehambleschool.co.uk and include your child’s name, tutor group, reason for absence and estimated day of return on the email. If you are using the Class Charts parent/carer App, please use the following instructions to help you:

If you are reporting a COVID-Related absence, please also indicate whether your child is well enough to work from home. We will arrange remote education if they are able to continue with their studies.

We would ask that in all circumstances you use the email address or App rather than phoning in.

Please note that if you do not report an absence by 08:30am you may be contacted via text message or email through our truancy system.
