Bristol School Attendance Strategy: Launch of Online Consultation
Bristol’s School Attendance Strategy Consultation is now available online.
Improving school attendance and reducing persistent absenteeism is a priority for Bristol and is a crucial part of the city’s ambition to raise standards and secure the best outcomes for all young people.
The draft Attendance Strategy recognises school attendance as everyone’s responsibility. In order to improve school attendance, a citywide partnership approach is needed. All schools, council services and partner agencies need to work together with children, young people, parents and carers to remove the barriers to good school attendance.
The draft strategy has been produced through a series of consultation events with partners, including focus groups with young people. We are now sharing the draft strategy more widely to get input from a broader range of people. Please give your views on the proposed approach via the survey.
The survey will be available online until the 20th of November.
