Sheffield Council launch school attendance charter

Written by Liam O'Connor

Sheffield Council have launched the first ever city-wide school attendance charter.

The charter marks a commitment to improving school attendance across the city through a number of pledges promoting the benefits of school life.

Sheffield City Council announced this initiative in cooperation with their partners Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, South Yorkshire Police, Sheffield Children’s NHS Trust Foundation and Sheffield’s NHS CCG.

Labour councillor Jayne Dunn, Executive Member for Education, Children and Families, praised the scheme and its benefits for young people.

She said: “School days can be the best days of our children’s lives, and every school day really does matter.

“We know the last couple of years have been tough for families and we want to help children make the most of their school day.”

The pledges range across a number of areas, such as making sure the right support is available for parents and children to attend school, and championing the benefits of good school attendance.
