School Attendance Solutions & Education Welfare Experts

Attendance Solutions Essex has a proven track record of providing services to schools which were traditionally provided by The Education Welfare Service. Independent of Essex County Council, the company has developed a bespoke model of service delivery capable of rapid and sustainable results.

We work hard to deliver results within about 6 weeks. We work with our schools to develop strategies to turn around attendance and other welfare issues. We're happy to be in-school providing a hands-on service or to act in a more advisory capacity to help you implement changes needed to combat the issues you face.

We're qualified, trained, experienced and authorised by Essex Police to issue Penaly Notices for non school attendance. We offer a full range of services geared not only to improving school attendance at your school, but also to take on the responsibility of dealing with parents and / or other agencies on your behalf.

Welfare & Advice

We identify, analyse, plan and review every aspect of your school's attendance. We produce attendance reports, data analysis, action plans and graphical evidence of the progress & improvements made in attendance levels as our strategies are rolled out term by term. We produce tailor-made assessments of persistent pupil absences which culminate in SMART action plans and SAPs (Student Attendance Plans) to encourage ownership of and responsibility for school attendance.

Overview & Ethos

Just one or two unauthorised absences each month, over the full cycle of a pupil's school career, will add up to more than a year's missed education, denying any real chance of reaching full potential and resulting in an inevitable downward spiral of non-achievement. We're wholly committed to creating and implementing strategies to encourage and enforce school attendance in order to ensure that every child has an opportunity to excel, regardless of and despite their circumstances.

Essex Police

Our working relationship with Essex Police is 7 years old. We were the first company authorised by Essex Police to issue Penalty Notices for irregular school attendance and unauthorised leave of absence during term time. Our Project Managers are accredited under Essex Police's Community Safety Accreditation Scheme. Schools can request Penalty Notices from Attendance Solutions Essex Ltd where all previous attempts at intervention and engagement with parents have failed. (Isle of Wight Council v Platt, Supreme Court, 04/17)
