Mrs Silburn 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.

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