To further improve attendance across the region, Monmouthshire and the four other Local Authorities in the SEWC have worked closely with the Educational Achievement Service and Professor Ken Reid to develop a strategic document outlining key principals to improve attendance. This document adheres to the principles outlined within the All Wales Attendance Framework (2011) and is a high level document which provides guidance to schools.
Local Authority Attendance Policy
Monmouthshire has developed a Local Attendance Policy as a guidance document that all schools can choose to adopt, or develop their own policy. This document highlights Local Policy and Practice and also makes reference to the Welsh Government Guidance on Fixed Penalty Notices.
