The Education Access Service
The Education Access Service is here to help both us and parents meet the obligations and duties placed on us by successive education acts and childcare legislation. Every school in Shropshire has an education welfare officer allocated to their school.
They each have their own 'patch' giving them responsibility for a number of schools, where they assess and advise on the managing of whole school attendance.
Education welfare officers will monitor whole school attendance on a regular basis and request information on all children with less than 90% attendance.
