Quick Reference


A service which acts on behalf of the local authority to ensure that parents fulfil their legal obligation to provide their child with an appropriate education. Its officers, known as education welfare officers (EWOs), education social workers, or attendance advisers, work with families and with schools to address cases of persistent truancy and other problems of non‐attendance. Parents or carers can be served with a notice or school attendance order if EWOs discover a child is not receiving an education. EWOs also support families of pupils who have encountered difficulties at school, or where home circumstances are causing disruption to the child's education.

Subjects: Education.
