Education Welfare Officer & Pupil & Family Support Officer
EDUCATION WELFARE 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.
PUPIL & FAMILY SUPPORT OFFICER
Mrs Spake is our newly appointed Pupil & Family Support Officer, she works Monday - Friday mornings to help our families or children.
