The Education Welfare Officer (EWO)

The Education Welfare Officer

The Cam Academy Trust employs an Education Welfare Officer, Kerry Puttock. The school and EWO always try to work with pupils and parents at an early stage to resolve problems. This is nearly always successful. However, the EWO also has a legal role and if other ways of resolving attendance have failed, these officers can use legal sanctions such as Penalty Notices or prosecutions in the Magistrates court. Kerry can be contacted via the school reception.
