Empowering Schools to Build an Attendance Culture

An exclusive conference led by Wayne Harris.

Join us for an exclusive conference led by Wayne Harris, a distinguished attendance leader with a remarkable track record in enhancing attendance rates within both Primary and Secondary school settings. With over a decade of experience, Wayne’s expertise has propelled him to the forefront of attendance improvement strategies.

Starting from January 2024, Wayne Harris will spearhead a ground-breaking Professional Development programme aimed at empowering schools to foster a culture of everyone being responsible for school attendance.

Part 1:

The Post Pandemic World

Analyse the challenges confronted by schools, children, and families in the aftermath of the pandemic. Delve into the invaluable insights derived from esteemed organisations and explore evidence-based research from both the United Kingdom and International collaborators.
Part 2:

Create a New Attendance Culture

Understand how to cultivate a culture where collective responsibility for school attendance is embraced. Establish an inclusive approach to attendance, offering professional learning to staff in understanding their roles and responsibilities. Elevate staff comprehension by applying the professional development model and extensively investigate the learning modules to instil a new attendance culture.
Part 3:

Redefine your Approach with a Revolutionary Mindset

Explore the process of moving away from traditional ‘top-down’ leadership style towards a culture where everyone actively engages in school attendance responsibility.
