The Framework is a practical resource toolkit for use by the Education Welfare Service and provides standards and guidance for practitioners to ensure greater consistency of practice throughout Wales.
Through the Behaving and Attending Action Plan we aim to create a culture of early intervention, effective support and ways to embed and disseminate good practice to promote positive behaviour and attendance in schools across Wales.

A key action in the Plan was to produce an Attendance Framework for Wales in partnership with the Education Welfare Service (EWS). The All Wales Attendance Framework provides standards and guidance for practitioners to ensure greater consistency of practice throughout Wales. It also aims to enable the EWS and schools to deliver services that are consistent, accessible and of a high standard.

This toolkit is divided into 3 sections:

  • section 1 contains guidance and standards giving an overview of the role and responsibility of the Education Welfare Service
  • section 2 contains a CD with exemplar material which has been collected from local authorities across Wales and the UK
  • section 3 contains a good practice guide for schools with strategies and case studies to help improve attendance and manage lateness.
