"The experience and knowledge and excellent quality of service of our Education Provider WPA Education Welfare Services has enabled us to raise attendance levels.


Our EWO has not only worked in partnership with us to develop effective systems to manage and improve attendance but has also built good relationships with our staff and families.


Communication between the EWO and the school is excellent whether verbally, in emails or in the half termly summative Attendance Reports which both governors, senior leaders and myself find very useful for evaluating the attendance."
