Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.

All Boards must reassure themselves that the school keeps admission and attendance registers in accordance with The Education (Pupil Registration)(England) Regulation ...

Nationally, educational outcomes of Children Looked After (CLA) continue to be lower than those of non-looked after children.

Safeguarding The Governing Board's Role (Governors)

The statutory guidance ‘Safeguarding children - Keeping children safe in education’ (September 2018), places statutory requirements on all governing boards.

The Role of Governors in the Exclusion Process (Governor)

Good discipline in schools is essential to ensure that all pupils can benefit from the opportunities provided by education. The Government supports headteachers in using exclusion as a sanction where it is warranted. However, permanent exclusion should only be used as a last resort, in response to a serious breach or persistent breaches, of the school's behaviour policy; and where allowing the pupil to remain in school would seriously harm the education or welfare of the pupil or others in the school.

Governors have a statutory duty to review certain pupil exclusions and consider parents' ...
