Children Missing Education
If a pupil has missed 10 consecutive school days without permission from the Academy a referral will be made to the Local Authority before or on the 10 day.
A pupil can be removed from the admission register when the Academy and the local authority have failed, after jointly making reasonable enquiries to establish the whereabouts of the child. This only applies if the Academy does not have reasonable grounds to believe that the pupil is unable to attend because of sickness or an unavoidable cause.
A pupil’s name can only be removed from the admission register under regulation 8(1), sub-paragraph (f)(iii) or (h)(iii) if the school and the local authority have failed to establish the students' whereabouts after jointly making reasonable enquiries after an absent period of no less than 20 days and the absence is unauthorised by school.
If you move out of the area and the distance is too far to travel to the Academy, please notify us immediately. We advise you to contact the admissions department (of the Local Authority where you now reside) as quickly as possible to obtain a new school place, as often places are limited.
