Education Welfare Officer
The EWO is a pastoral care role working with students, parents, staff and outside agencies. Much of their time is taken looking at strategies to help long term or persistent poor school attendees. Many of our students have responsibilities for other family members, on-going health problems or issues with housing; the EWO looks into what support the Academy can provide in these situations. Often working with parents to help them put both structure and boundaries in place for their children, can greatly improve students attendance. The EWO can also identify students who are having emotional problems either in the Academy or at home.
