Pupil Deletion from Roll

Ofsted and the Children's Commissioner for England have raised concerns about children being taken off roll and 'disappearing' from the authorities.   In the process of school inspections, data concerning children who have been removed from roll is studied and analysed.  Attendance, after all, is a safeguarding issue. 

This course aims to inform schools of their legal responsibilities, ensuring that pupils are removed from roll safely,  appropriately and within the lawful framework as set out by national government statutes.
