Being a relatively large school, using the Attendance Service has helped reduce some of the workload of our administration team as well as that of the School Attendance Lead. For example, having the staffing capacity to carry out home visits is not always possible for us.

Parents and carers sometimes respond in a different way when they receive attendance concern letters from an external partner and it helps preserve the positive relationships the school has established with families. The service provides a ‘next step’ after the school has put attendance support strategies in place, issued informal warnings and followed their attendance policy and procedures.

Our Attendance Adviser has sometimes been able to put us in touch with other agencies which we hadn’t always been aware of beforehand. This has developed the range of support strategies we have been able to offer our families.
