Children Missing from School

If a child goes missing from education they could be at risk of significant harm.

Concerns could be raised because

  • Child has failed to attend school for a number of days without good reason
  • There has been no contact from the parents giving reasons for the absence
  • There is unsubstantiated contact from an “unknown adult” that the child has left the school
  • There are information or “rumours” from other children that the child has left
  • Information has been found on social media by other children that leads school staff to believe that the child has left

 

The Protocol is:

1. The school Attendance Advisory Officer will be contacted and asked to make a home address visit to obtain information.

2. The School Attendance Advisory Officer will contact the school at the earliest opportunity to advise staff of the result of the enquiries

3. If it is not possible to speak to the person named as a contact, a letter or e-mail will be sent to that person asking for information about the missing child and their whereabouts

If no contact is made or information gained then:

4. School will contact the Local Authority missing child service and advise them that the child is no longer attending, detailing the enquiries that have been made to trace them and providing any information that has been obtained.
