I am retiring during the summer term after almost 30 years working in education welfare. Read more about why at RETIREMENT. The attendance content of this website will then be closed down once the final round of FORUM Training Attendance Officer courses have taken place, (see link below).
Until then I am still committed to promoting a welfare-based and strategic approach to ATTENDANCE, not only a focus on improving the figures. I will offer you an informed and independent voice that gives you real practical help in carrying out your statutory duties and which seeks to promote more effective solutions for those children and young people who most need them.
But there is more to life than work so my HOME page now reflects my other main interest. Can Christianity and its central figure mean anything to those who are not convinced that conventional ideas of 'God' take us where we need to go as modern, thoughtful, rational human beings? This will be the continuing subject of my website once I have retired.
