School Attendance Campaign
On 12th June a workshop was held with schools to help prepare for a new school attendance campaign in the city. Participants looked at the key drivers for school absence in Portsmouth, the various audiences the campaign would have to target, the type of messages that should go out and the channels of communication that could be used.
Work is now in hand to develop some concepts which will be shared with schools later this term before the first phase of the campaign is launched in the Autumn term.
