Children missing education

The Department of Education has indicated that reporting duties for schools when children are missing education, either through being unenrolled or extended absence, are to change.

Schools must comply with the duties from 1 September 2016. Please read the regulations which detail the new duties, these should be read alongside the existing regulations.

Currently, there are 15 lawful reasons a pupil can be taken off the pupil roll and of these, 5 must be reported to local authorities. The core of the new duties is that schools will have to report when a pupil is unenrolled for all 15 reasons. Also schools will have to jointly work with the local authority when making reasonable enquiries where a pupil is absent for 10 days following on from a period of approved leave or is absent for 20 consecutive school days without approved leave.

In order to comply with the regulations, your school must act quickly to make the requisite amendments to your existing reporting/registration mechanisms to accommodate these regulations.
