Charter to promote and improve attendance across city

A charter has been launched to build on the existing good practive within the city to ensure young people and their families are ware that every day attending a Liverpool school matter.

Liveprool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce are proud to be supporting the charter and promote it both members and the wider business community.

There has been recognition that the required improvements in overall attendance rates can only be achieved through a partnership approach. This will involve schools, young people, their families and all agencies working with children and families across the city.

Central to the work is the understanding that promoting positive school attendance is a responsibility that belongs to everyone if we are achieve the city’s aspiration of a minimum of 97% attendance rate.

The strategy is intended to provide the framework to support continuous improvement in overall attendance rates and a significant reduction in persistent absenteeism. It is also linked to an attendance action plan which has identified key priorities for the city and will be delivered over the next two years.

Elaine Rees, CEO of the Liverpool Learning Partnership, is asking businesses to endorse the strategy by signing the charter and together help to improve attendance across our city and beyond.

A copy of Elaine's letter to businesses can be found here.

If you would like further information about the charter please contact the Chamber or the Liverpool Learning Partnership.
