Attendance Support

Miss Beth Hammell is our Attendance Support Worker. She works closely in liaison with our year group pastoral teams to work alongside those families whose children may be struggling to come to school, for many different reasons.  


Ms Katy Townsend is our Assistant Headteacher with oversight of attendance and punctuality. She works with the attendance and pastoral teams to improve attendance and punctuality across the school, as well as co-ordinating with secondary schools across the city to bring our attendance policies into line with each other.
