"WPA started working with us over five years ago to improve our school's attendance. Prior to WPA, the service we had been receiving did not meet our school's needs.


WPA has been a breath of fresh air. The ethos of the company and staff alike mirror those of our school. We have worked very closely to improve the school attendance. The staff are reliable, professional and able to advise the school on all legal aspects surrounding attendance.


Our attendance has increased especially our persistent non-attenders and term time holiday takers. This was something we had previously struggled with. We would highly recommend WPA."
