Fast-Track Prosecution Process & Case Study Workshop 

The new, streamlined process known as Fast Track Prosecution has now replaced the 'Spotlight' programme.  The training has been extended to a full day, and includes case studies and more detailed input regarding early help.   This offers participants an opportunity to explore particular scenarios that affect a range of primary, secondary and special schools.  We hope this extended training will assist in implementing prosecution processes where necessary, but also address pre-prosecution alternative support mechanisms to raise attendance through early help.

Course duration: 10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Suitable for:      All Academies and Maintained Schools, Designated Liaison Person for pupil attendance; Head teachers; SLT Attendance Leads; Attendance Managers with leadership responsibility for attendance.

Session Content:

  • How, why & when we take legal action
  • Reviewing the 'Spotlight' process & transition to Fast-Track Prosecution

NOT A BIRMINGHAM SCHOOL?   There are generic processes that can be implemented to make the action of court intervention a smooth(er) journey for all schools and academies.  If your school is not within the Birmingham Local Authority, but you would be interested in attending a similar session, please let us know.  While we cannot specify training for each particular LA with its own policies and process, we can offer the following:

  • Guidance and practical advice running a fast track programme for prosecution
  • What and how to collect, collate and present evidence
  • Timelines for bringing a prosecution case
  • Template documents for whole school/individual letters and witness statement formats for court
  • Advice and guidance for court appearances etc.   

Sufficient interest from schools in other areas regarding this topic will generate such a course - please contact us!
