Children Missing From Education

We are committed to ensuring every child has the opportunity to grow up in a safe community.  We are concerned about any child missing education, not only in the way that it impacts on the individual's potential achievement but also in relation to their safety and welfare. The purpose of the CME policy is to ensure that children missing education are reengaged in appropriate education provision in the shortest possible time, with lasting success and that 'no child slips through the net.'
