I met with Jancis Andrew, our new Head of Attendance, today...

Jancis is a breath of fresh air. She is bright, talented and gorgeous and will bring new ideas and new energy to our work on improving school attendance. Her understanding of the need to see improving attendance as part of a holistic approach to school improvement is really refreshing. We are doing all the usual things to improve attendance and now need to think creatively and imaginatively about why some of our young people and their families don't see regular school attendance as important.

We certainly live in interesting times.
