FINAL REMINDER! Education Welfare Service Attendance Matters Network – Spring Term 2020
The Education Welfare Service (EWS) holds termly Attendance Matters Network meetings for school attendance leads and officers to support good practice across the borough. The spring term meeting is being held on Tuesday 28 January 2020, 9.30am – 3.30pm, at the Professional Development Centre. This training is free to attend.
EWS Attendance Matters Network meetings are held termly and open to all school attendance leads and officers. They provide an update on developments locally and nationally in all aspects of pupil absence, with particular links to raising attainment, disadvantaged groups and educational inequality.
Each session provides the opportunity for case discussion, talks from invited speakers and sharing good practice between schools to improve attendance and punctuality.
The spring term focus is on ‘difficult conversations’ with parents and the Signs of Safety & Well-being framework. Both topics are essential to working with vulnerable groups.
