Welcome to Our School



 FRIDAY 4th NOVEMBER - As there is no water supply to the school this morning, we have had to make the decision to close the school for health and safety reasons.  This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and we apologise for the inconvenience.

Dear Parent/Carer,

The Governors and Staff hope that the information contained in this website will be helpful to you and your children.  If you cannot find what you are looking for, would like to know more, or have any suggestions about what you would like to see included on the website, please do not hesitate to contact the school by whichever method suits you best.

At Altofts, we want to create a learning environment that is exciting, challenging, safe and happy. We want to unlock the potential of every child to help them to achieve, both in their learning and as they grow into young people.

At our school, we believe in developing a partnership with parents that will benefit the children through working together.  We welcome parents into school to work with us in a variety of ways, at our termly Inspire workshops, and also through assisting in classrooms and on educational visits, making resources and working with our Parents' Association. If you think you would like to be involved in similar activities, or have any other skills to offer, please contact the school.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming community. If you are new to the school and have not already visited, please arrange to come and see us.

We look forward to hearing from you! 

Yours sincerely

 Mrs TA Peacock







..... please listen to Ridings FM (106.8FM) or check their website at www.ridingsfm.co.uk for details of school closures.  Information should also be available on the Council's website, www.wakefield.gov.uk, and where possible, we will try to send text messages and update this page and our Twitter feed.  Please be patient though; we have learnt from previous years that there is often heavy demand on the necessary websites early in the morning.  We will always do our best to ensure that we remain open, but the health and safety of all pupils and adults at the school is of primary concern.
