We know a whole family approach works best and each member of the team has their own specialist area of knowledge, experience and interest in the broader issues that can affect a parent's ability to ensure their child's regular attendance at school

Thank you for considering the Education Welfare Service (EWS) as your school improvement partner working with you to promote and achieve good and outstanding attendance and punctuality.

The EWS is Experienced, Well-regarded and Skilled and always goes the extra mile to ensure your needs are met. 

We aim to provide a bespoke service across the full range of support available and, if there is something you need that isn't contained within our current product, please do get in touch to discuss. 

We have listened to our customers, who tell us they prefer an easy to understand list of the types of support to choose from that best meets their needs.

NEW - Attendance and participation in one School Council meeting per year to promote Pupil Voice
NEW – Anti-bullying parent sessions
NEW – Anti-bullying assemblies

Policy, strategy and quality assurance

NEW - Case progression quality assurance conducted by service managers with feedback to support practice learning
NEW – Anti-bullying policy reviews
NEW - Annual attendance reviews to comprehensively support schools with compliance and good policy and practice development
