New support for Education Welfare Service announced, 08/03/11

Education Welfare Services work closely with schools, parents and pupils to ensure children and young people attend school, working particularly on cases of persistent absenteeism.

The document, The All Wales Attendance Framework, stems from the National Behaviour and Attendance Action Plan and for the first time sets down in writing the role and responsibilities of Education Welfare Service workers.

Every local authority in Wales has an Education Welfare Service and copies of the new document will be sent to all the officers in each authority.

More information is available on the Welsh Assembly Government’s website.
