Education welfare services

We provide an extensive network of educational welfare services to children, parents/carers and schools.


We carry out a number of statutory functions particularly in the areas of school attendance and the regulation of child employment as well as the licensing of children in entertainment, modelling and paid sporting activities

We have the aim of improving school attendance and supporting strategies to improve pupil behaviour

We also try to ensure that, as far as possible, all pupils are included and, therefore, able to gain the maximum benefit from the educational opportunities available to them. We have a statutory duty to monitor and track children missing from education.
