The Attendance Compliance Team are committed to the principle that all children have the right to a suitable education. Regular school attendance is vital to enable children and young people to achieve their ambitions through:
- life-long learning
Our core function is to protect children's education. We do this by fulfilling the local authority's statutory functions in relation to school absence. If school-based interventions do not improve a child's attendance, we provide a structured response. This is free of charge to schools and academies. Legal intervention, in the form of penalty notice or prosecution, would take place as appropriate.
