Glenfield Infant School

together we are brilliant

Education Welfare Officer & Pupil & Family Support Officer


Each half-term we have an attendance audit in school between the Headteacher, Pupil & Family Support Officer (Mrs Spake) and the Attendance Administrator (Mrs Oldbury). At this audit we look at the attendance of all pupils, but especially those whose attendance is under 90%. We try a number of strategies to improve attendance with those families, however, if there is no improvement we may make a referral to Mrs Cummings our Education Welfare Officer at Southampton City Council. If a referral is made there may be a number of interventions, which will involve the Education Welfare Office. The Education Welfare Office are also responsible for issuing fixed penalty notices at the request of the school.



Mrs Spake is our newly appointed Pupil & Family Support Officer, she works Monday - Friday mornings to help our families or children.
