Worries about school attendance should be discussed initially with school.

Our Pupil Welfare Officer at Blackpool Council is Julie Talbot.  She is always available for further advice.

The role of Pupil Welfare is to:

  • Improve school attendance

  • Safeguard children

  • Work with agencies to support families

  • Track missing children

  • Issue performance licences

  • Issue penalty notices when required

Julie Talbot can be contacted on 01253 476462 and there is also a voicemail facility on these numbers.
