Attendance improvement

Our Attendance Improvement Service supports schools in achieving higher levels of attendance for the whole school as well as for individual pupils by:

  • Providing strategic advice supporting policy and operational practice within schools
  • Offering advice and training on the evaluation and effective use of attendance data
  • Progressing a clear escalation process to encourage improvement
  • Instigating an effective legal process to address parental responsibility

Note: we are taking expressions of interest only at the moment for attendance improvement consultancy days, due to the new guidance and Attendance Improvement Officers implementing the new attendance strategies, as we need to prioritise the core offer from the Local Authority.  This will be reviewed after the New Year.
