Mission Statement

The aim of Education Welfare Ltd is to support schools in ensuring that all pupils on roll from nursery provision upwards have the benefit of maximum access to educational opportunity through regular attendance at school and that parents fulfil their legal obligations regarding the education of their children.

Education Welfare Ltd plays an important role in liaising with other agencies and aims to provide the greatest possible support for pupils of school age and their families so that educational opportunities are maximised.

Six principles underlying our work with pupils:

• The interests and welfare of the pupil are paramount.
• Parents have a vital role in supporting their children.
• Partnership with other agencies is crucial.
• Education is a fundamental right of every child.
• Prevention is always better than cure.
• Priority must be given to the protection of children from abuse and exploitation in any form.
