Wayne has led attendance in both Primary and Secondary settings since 2007, he has a proven record of rapidly improving attendance at both a MAT and individual school level.  A key element of these improvements has been implementing a child-centred and evidence-informed improvement model, along with outstanding Professional Development for all staff. Last year Wayne worked with over 500 schools to embed effective attendance practice.  During this period he created the largest national attendance network within the United Kingdom.
