Event/course type Course / Network, forums, briefings, meetings and conferences
Event Description This free half-day training session, delivered by Worcestershire Children First, is intended for Worcestershire school based staff who may need to instigate a request for legal proceedings as part of their school attendance escalation process.

The training will explore when a request for legal proceedings maybe appropriate and the requirements upon schools in making such requests. The session will focus on unauthorised pupil absence (including unauthorised leave in term time) and will provide delegates with the latest information and appropriate resources to demonstrate what is required in order for the Local Authority to consider the issuing of a penalty notice or undertake a prosecution.

This training is one of four sessions - Delegates only need to attend ONE SESSION.

Training Objectives School Attendance Leads, Head teachers, School Attendance Officers, or any other school based associated staff with a key role in addressing pupil attendance, absence and welfare would be most welcome. (max 2 candidates per school).
