Parliamentary Briefings

School-Home Support’s  evidence  to the Education Select Committee Inquiry on Persistent absence and support for disadvantaged pupils helped to deliver a significant win for the Dig a Little Deeper Campaign with the Government pledging £15 million to expand the existing Attendance Mentors programme and committing to a refocus around support for the whole family

Briefing on the School Attendance Bill.
