Children’s Attendance Welfare Services
CAWS was founded in 2012 to bridge the gap left when Leicestershire County Council withdrew their Attendance Improvement Service and its Officers from schools. Since then, CAWS has expanded to providing its services from a handful of schools to over 40 schools.
CAWS has at its fingertips, the knowledge and expertise of a qualified Education Welfare Officer with more than 20 years’ experience in relation to education and school attendance.
CAWS is a focused, committed and positive company, who provides schools, parents, children and young people with support, advice, and knowledge with regard to attendance and welfare concerns at school.
Our overall goal is to ensure that children and young people gain access to education and attend school regularly.
