Attendance Service

What is access to education services?

The local authority has a statutory duty to ensure that a parent is responsible for ensuring their child receives ‘an efficient, full-time education that is suitable to the child’s age, ability and aptitude and to any special educational needs the child may have’ (Section 7 of the Education Act 1996).

The local authority Attendance Service provides expertise, guidance and support to schools, professionals, parents and carers in Children Missing Education (CME) and Educating your child at home.
