Government research shows a clear correlation between regular attendance at school and pupil progress and achievement.
Our service provides best practice regarding school attendance. We offer support and training to improve whole school attendance and reduction of the number of persistent absentees. We will provide your school with current Government legislation and guidance in relation to school attendance matters. Your school will have a named Education Welfare Officer, together with the support of the EWS team. Our officers will support your school in the use of legal sanctions, including penalty notices and fast track to prosecution, where appropriate.
