Education Welfare Service

The Education Welfare Service supports parents and schools in ensuring all children have acceptable levels of school attendance in Bedford Borough.  The Education Welfare Service has a legal responsibility to monitor school attendance and consider court action against parents whose children do not attend school regularly. We also have responsibilities to do with protecting children from abuse and danger, protecting children in employment and licensing children in entertainment, modelling and sport.
