Children Missing from Education
We all need to play our part in protecting children – identifying those who are missing from education and making sure they get back to school. The Education and Early Years Service works with pupils and parents to ensure that children of compulsory school age attend school regularly.
A child is considered missing from education if he or she is not on a state or private school roll or being home-schooled.
The current compulsory school age for children in England and Wales is 5-18 years.
If you see a child or young person who you think is missing education please contact us.
If you believe a child is at immediate risk of harm always call 999.
