Children Missing Education, Statutory Guidance for Local Authorities (September 2016)

Children Missing Education, Statutory Guidance for local authorities sets out key principles to enable local authorities in England to implement their legal duty under section 436A of the Education Act 1996 to make arrangements to identify, as far as it is possible to do so, children missing education.

 

This guidance can be used as a non-statutory advice by:
 

  • School leaders, school staff and governing bodies in all maintained schools and academies, independent schools
  • Health professionals, Youth Offending Teams, and the police.
