About the Organisation
Good school attendance gives children the opportunity of success and helps develop skills for life. All children should attend school every day unless there is an unavoidable cause like illness.
Missing school damages a pupil’s learning and their grades, disrupts routines and can make pupils vulnerable to crime. Pupils should never miss school for reasons like shopping, birthdays or to wait in for a repair person.
Parents/carers commit an offence if a child doesn’t attend school regularly and the absence is not agreed by the school.
The EWS has the statutory responsibility for ensuring that parents/carers fulfil their legal duties regarding school attendance. Officers liaise with schools, parents and young people to resolve issues wherever possible. This may involve referral to other support agencies. In some circumstances the EWS may have to take legal enforcement action against the parents/carers.
The EWS also track pupils who go missing from school and ensure those young people who have part-time jobs or perform in entertainment are safe and protected from harm.
