An Attendance Review is an overview of your whole school systems and policy for attendance. It includes discussions with key staff, governor and pupil voice and a statistical analysis of absence data with local and national comparators.
The report is delivered in draft form within two working weeks and will recognise good practice already working in the school as well as making recommendations for further improvements. Education Five can also develop and deliver an action plan from these recommendations if desired by the school.
Independent Education Welfare Officer Support
Education Five understands the varying needs of schools in terms of attendance support. It is also understood that getting to improved attendance or maintaining good levels of attendance needs to happen by a co-ordinated and structured approach to the issues in each school. There are often complex reasons why children do not attend school regularly and establishing good professional relationships with staff, parents and children are key to making these improvements happen.
Parent Support Adviser
Parents/ carers can be a huge influence on a child’s learning and attitude to school. A Parent Support Adviser based in school is an excellent point of accessible contact for parents to discuss a whole range of issues – from financial worries to concerns about their children’s behaviour or refusal to attend school. Education Five provides this role and has the knowledge and experience of working positively with parents to help them access the correct support.
The PSA can also;
Work on a one to one with children to discuss worries or problems in a solution focused way
Make referrals to appropriate agencies for parents and children to access support
Organise and lead in early help cases
Be part of the safeguarding team in your school
Enhance the support systems already in place in your school.
