Talking about Attendance
Dame Rachel de Souza, Children’s Commissioner for England visited Newman Catholic College in North London to talk to a group of pupils who have had difficulties with attendance in the past and who have started tackling being in school with the help of the school and it’s staff. She discusses what the problems were, what changed, and how that change brought about with students who are open and frank about their journey. The visit was part of the Commissioner’s ongoing project to tackle attendance in schools post pandemic.
