Regular attendance at school means your child can make the most of their education and have the best start in life.  

The more your child attends the more they will fulfil their potential.  

Miss Simpson co-ordinates the First Day Response system for following up absences. Where contact cannot be made by telephone, home visits will be carried out by two members of staff. Please ensure you contact school as soon as possible to report any absences and ensure your child returns to school as soon as possible. 

We expect all children to have good or better attendance (96% or higher) and arrive on time at the start of the day. 

We are unable to authorise any term-time holidays. These will be recorded as an unauthorised absence on your child’s attendance record and Penalty Notices will be issued. 

Poor or irregular attendance and/or persistent lateness will result in a referral to the Wakefield EWO and a Penalty Notice will be issued. 

For further information please refer to the attendance policy below.
