Children missing from Education
Please see details below of the procedure and process for reporting Children Missing in Education
When a child is absent for 10 days or more and the school is not able to contact parents to ascertain the reason for their absence a Child Missing from Education Referral is made to the Local Authority. The Local Authority will then follow up the referral to try to locate the family.
Prior to making a referral the school will initiate the fast track attendance procedure by sending an initial warning letter. Please see the school's Attendance Policy Document.
