Children missing education: statutory guidance for local authorities.
Summary: Updated guidance on identifying children who are missing education and helping them get back into it. Changes have been made to help local authorities and schools in England meet the recent changes to the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006. Key points include: children missing education are at significant risk of being victims of harm, exploitation or radicalisation; effective information sharing between parents, schools and local authorities is critical to ensuring that all children of compulsory school age are safe and receiving suitable education.
