Education Welfare Officers


Education Welfare Officers (EWO)

Education Welfare Officers (EWO) aim to improve regular school attendance and participation, by working alongside parents and children.

Students with attendance at 90% and below (mostly unauthorised) over the previous 4 weeks and where there is evidence that the issuing of a Penalty Notice would not make an impact. Once a school has investigated the attendance concerns an Education Welfare Officer can collaboratively work with the school and parents to increase the level of the student’s attendance.
