This publication has been compiled with attendance champions in mind to support them with the management of attendance in line with recent national expectations.
It considers some very simple things that can be done to ensure barriers are removed to get children into school and provides a comprehensive RAG toolkit to support school's self-assessment of their current position.
There are also a series of internet links that signpost to wider national guidance to support further reading.
The publication includes:
1. Working in partnership
2. Keeping Children Safe in Education (spotting patterns in attendance)
4. DfE School attendance guidance (summary of responsibilities)
5. Parent summary
6. RAG rating toolkit for attendance champions
