Attendance Enforcement

Sefton Council is committed to supporting ­children and young people, schools and families to achieve and maintain good attendance at school.

Parents and carers have a duty to ensure that their children attend school regularly and punctually in order to get the most benefit from their education.  

The Enforcement Procedures set out the requirements for schools and other education settings for the management of pupil attendance. They reflect the most recent guidance from the Department for education 2015.
