South Shore Academy (Previously Palatine Community Sports College) is Blackpool’s newest Academy and we are looking to recruit three Attendance Officers who would become part of a dedicated and highly skilled Attendance Team.

 Students kept in classes?

Does a school really need to fork out £60K pa to keep children in school?  What part do parents take?  So, society has to pay for delinquent children and malfeasant parents?  I will rephrase that; pensioners and single adults have to pay for the inadequacies of others.  Children are parents’ responsibility and ought to be until or unless parents have proven incapable of caring and providing for their children.  Society must then take over, but that does not mean that the feckless or criminal can or should benefit.

I can just imagine the first two name on this form.  James SaVile and Stewart Hall. "Keep the kids safe!" but this has proven impossible for Blackpool, the Council and the Police.  It needs fresh blood and strong leadership.  Not dictatorship and cabals.  We desperately need to know the truth about the disappearance of
Charlene Downes.  A decade is too long for any family to wait for positive action.
