Attendance Compliance

Page last updated: 22/02/2019

​​​​​​​​​The Attendance Compliance Team are committed to the principle that all children have the right to a suitable education and regular school attendance is vital to enable young people to achieve their ambitions through education, training and life-long learning.   
Our core function is to protect children’s education, through fulfilling the local authority’s statutory functions in relation to school absence. If school interventions have not improved a child’s attendance, we provide, at no charge to schools/academies, a structured response where legal intervention, in the form of penalty notice, prosecution or Education Supervision Order, is considered to be necessary.
