PARENT GOVERNOR ELECTION
We received two nominations for candidates for the Parent Governor election and so an election is being held.
A letter about the ballot has been sent to parents today (21 November 2017) which includes information about the candidates.
All contacts with parental responsibility are eligible to vote. If you believe yourself to be eligible but have not received your letter by Thursday 23 November please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Letters to parents who do not reside with their children have been posted. Again, if you do not receive your expected ballot letter, please email to the same address.
If you have changed your address or contact details, again please send the updated details to the school email address: email@example.com
Closing date for ballot papers to be received back in school, to either office, is 10am on Monday 4 December.
The count will take place at 2.15pm on Wednesday 6 December at the Priory Road site.
Parents will be notified of the result of the election by ParentMail and via the school website: www.hamiltonacademy.org.uk
Ofsted Report published - June 2015 - Hamilton is a good school
Reminder of our closure procedures in case of severe weather: should there be a need to contact parents in the event of hazardous weather, a text message will be sent to all who have registered their mobile numbers on ParentMail. Details of school closure information will be on this website and be announced on the Bucks website: www.buckscc.gov.uk
Any decision will be made as early as possible by the Headteacher and Chair of Governors. Please be assured that the school will only be closed as a last resort - the weather would have to be severe enough to prevent a majority of staff getting to school.
If you haven't registered to use ParentMail you are urged to do so. On this website click the link 'For Parents' and choose 'ParentMail' then submit your details and a registration letter will be sent to you.

To all users of MyMaths
Hamilton has been chosen by the MyMaths team to be a pilot school for its new website. As a result of this I would like you to use the new website and - if you could spare a few moments - provide me with feedback on how you and your child finds the new site; for example whether it’s easier to use and more fun. I will then collate the feedback to forward to the MyMaths team.
New web address: www.mymathspilot.co.uk The username and password remain unchanged.
I am grateful for your support – MyMaths is proving to be a really useful tool to consolidate maths knowledge across the age groups.
Angus Blackmore, Deputy Headteacher

Larks breakfast club
We currently have spaces in the Larks breakfast club, which runs daily in term time from - if you are interested, please contact the school office at Hampden Road on 01494 437317 for further details and booking forms.
The Hamilton Larks Breakfast Club is run on the Hampden Road site and is open to all children attending Hamilton Academy. The Larks operates Monday to Friday in term time, from 7.45am to 8.45am. Children based at Priory Road will be escorted by a member of the Larks’ staff in time for the beginning of their school day. The children are encouraged to select, prepare, eat and clear away their own choice of healthy, nutritious breakfast. They then participate in a stimulating educational or social activity aimed at giving them the best possible start to their day at school and put them in the right mind to maximise their learning potential. Each daily session costs £4.00, and may be booked in advance – bookings are based on a first come first served basis - payment in advance or on the day.
