  • Set up regular meetings between the Education Welfare Officer (EWO) Key Stage 3 manager/SENCO as well as head of year to ensure there is a holistic and strategic approach to attendance and attainment.
  • Academic Review Day – attendance to become part of conversation with every family.
  • EWO to produce package for all new staff to support Induction which will include guidance on codings, the importance of attending and accurate registration
  • Focus on lateness.
  • Continue with the review meetings but make them less frequent.
  • Review of attendance statistics on half-termly basis with senior leadership team (SLT) and monthly with head of year.

We're sorry

Teachfind is temporarily down for scheduled maintenance

We're shifting Teachfind to a more powerful setup, so when it comes back it will be much faster than before.

We should be back up and running within a day or two.

In the meantime, why not find out about our new application Teacher Dashboard.

It turns Office365 into a powerful LMS, and it's free...
