School attendance guidance and codes.
The Department for Education (DfE) have made no change to the statutory school age leaving date for Year 11 pupils. Schools cannot remove Year 11 pupils from roll prior to the last Friday in June unless the reason meets the prescribed grounds as per the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006.
Page 65 of guidance issued from the DfE makes it clear that there is an expectation for Year 11 students to receive tuition/support until the last Friday in June. This can be in school or on line and this work, with Year 11 pupils, should cover transition to post 16 options.
The DfE have indicated that the use of the S code this year may not be applicable as there is no requirement for pupils to undertake independent study leave. Where headteachers have shared with parents that Year 11 pupils are not expected in school prior to the last Friday in June this absence should be authorised by the headteacher using the absence code ‘C’.
The Inclusion Pathways Team works countywide to support and provide education for children and young people when they are out of school due to reasons of exclusion, being at risk of exclusion, or as a result of their medical needs.
A managed move is the transfer of a pupil to another school on a trial basis, when the pupil is at risk of permanent exclusion and their behaviour is causing serious concerns.
Guidance about children who cannot attend school due to long term health needs.
The Department for Education (DfE) collates both fixed period and permanent exclusion data from every local authority (LA).
