Removal From Roll & New starters

In accordance with the the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 and the 2016 amendments, pupils will only be deleted from the register on prescribed grounds.

Schools removing pupils under Regulations 8(1)(f) and 8(1)(h) have a duty alongside local authorities to jointly carry out reasonable enquiries to try and locate pupils absent from school before removing from roll. Further information is available on Warwickshire’s Child Missing Education web page.

All Warwickshire schools (including academies and independent schools) must notify the local authority when:
