Exploring the role of family hubs in supporting school attendance

Learn more about our Exploring the role of family hubs in supporting school attendance webinar.

About this webinar

This webinar will provide an opportunity to explore the role family hubs can have in supporting attendance in education settings, including a consideration of the needs of children, parents, carers and the barriers they can face.  We will also think about ways family hub teams can help in holding families in mind when the school run becomes a tough call.     Supporting attendance is important for everyone who works with families. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, school attendance is at historically low levels and many of the most vulnerable children are finding it hardest to go to school regularly. We know this can have important consequences for their wellbeing and educational development and can also impact the wellbeing of families. 

There will be a wide range of speakers; parents and carers, local authorities, Anna Freud, Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) and others with experience of supporting families where attendance has been a real challenge for the child or young person.

Aims of this webinar

 In this webinar we hope to continue a conversation for those involved with family hub development to think together about: 

  • Ways to signpost, link and journey with families to help them support school attendance for their children ;

  • How to build a better understanding of some of the more complex issues some families and children can face; 

  • How family hub teams might be part of the conversations between families and education settings;

  • Examples of adaptations that have made a difference for children and young people.
