Education Welfare Service

The Education Welfare Service works with schools to ensure the regular school attendance of all pupils.  It works with schools to identify pupils with low attendance and ensures appropriate plans are in place.  EWS offers early intervention and support, utilising a Team Around the Family (TAF) approach when needed.  Where attendance does not improve EWS will consider referring the matter to the court. EWS also helps prevent children becoming missing from education.

EWS also issue licences for children in entertainment and employment and child chaperones.

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your work on FIS Carmarthenshire Website. I'm working on pulling together some information for a local initiative to educate children and teens on the consequences of drugs and alcohol. I'm working on preparing a pamphlet, and I've learned a lot from your page. I noticed that you had some really great resources. Well done!
