Recognised for our knowledge and practice, Swift Edification is involved in delivering training for various organisations regionally and nationally. We invest in the continued professional development of our team, ensuring that we are fully up to date with best practice, legislation, guidance and research in our field. As we are in the privileged position of working with so many schools, delivering attendance and welfare support, our practice is always current and constantly evolving.
Good attendance rates make all the difference to students learning. Any pupil with an 80% attendance rate over five years misses one complete year of school. But, with professional help, schools can improve attendance figures and support each pupil’s potential to learn and succeed.
How We Can Help Our attendance consultancy team can help build capacity in your setting by taking both a strategic and a hands-on approach to attendance. This can include supporting attendance reviews, analysing your data and advising on practices to help identify the best use of your resources. We can also support these plans where necessary. Our main objective is to ensure young people achieve the best outcomes.
The government have therefore advised all schools to improve overall attendance levels and have released several new guidelines on their expectations in improving attendance levels. Therefore, our consultancy team will work with your school over a period of time to ensure effective monitoring practices are embedded. Whilst advising you accordingly to identify your most vulnerable cohorts, they will also be ensuring effective strategies (whole school, targeted groups or individualised) are implemented successfully.
You’re School in Safe Hands:
Our attendance consultants who have all previously worked within schools as attendance officers amd the local authority as Education Welfare Officers will work with your school to ensuring good attendance practice while safeguarding issues remain paramount. The consultant will attend your school to monitor school attendance policy, advise on holding attendance meetings with parent/carers for individual pupils with poor attendance, provide advice on tracking and monitoring attendance, and suggest ways to improve attendance. The consultant may also advise, make recommendations on the school attendance policy in line with government legislation. Our attendance consultant will also inform you of new and emerging support – including attendance punctuality and initiatives, register sweeps, early bird, and late gate initiatives.
