Meet the Attendance Team


To contact any member of the team, please email:

Mrs R Ford
Assistant Principal for Attendance and Interventions


I became Assistant Principal for Attendance and Interventions in September 2022 having worked as Director of Curriculum Development at Caister Academy since 2020.  

Our attendance target for all students is 98%. 

This level of attendance will enable students to make the best possible progress and will therefore have a direct impact on their future. 

As an Attendance Team, our united focus is to support students and parents by working together to address any in-school barriers, along with celebrating ongoing success and rewarding students for improved attendance.

Mrs D Jermy
Attendance Improvement Officer


I joined Caister Academy in April 2023 as Attendance Improvement Officer.  

I work closely with students, families, and agencies to help remove any barriers which may prevent a child from being able to attend school.  

I have worked in education for many years on the pastoral side and enjoy the enormous privilege of being able to help young people to fulfil their potential by supporting them to attend school, therefore building the foundations for a positive future. I am excited to be part of an enthusiastic and supportive team at Caister Academy where every child matters 


Miss L Bates
Attendance Administrator


I joined Caister Academy as Attendance Administrator in February 2023 and am delighted to be a part of Caister’s attendance team.  

You will see me within Caister Academy daily engaging with parents and students. You might speak to me on the phone as I am the first contact in the attendance office. 

Job satisfaction in this role comes from seeing young people excelling and having the opportunity to be happy with everything they have achieved when they leave education. I really enjoy supporting students within the academy to remain in school and arrive at their lessons on time. I also enjoy celebrating student attendance success by having a fundamental role in student rewards.  

Mrs A Scally
Academy Driver


I re-joined Caister Academy in January 2023 to become the Home Visit Driver and to offer attendance support. 

You might meet me when I visit your home if we are offering support to you child due to absence. I enjoy being able to work with the Caister community each day to build communication between the academy and parents/carers.  

I previously worked for Caister Academy as a Head of Year, and it is a pleasure to be back as part of the new attendance team.
