Pupil attendance, advice for schools

On these pages schools will find advice and resources to assist with improving attendance and reducing persistent absence.

FAST-track to Attendance is the legal process schools should use to tackle ongoing unauthorised absence – for more information see page 2.

The Leave in Term Time (Penalty Notice) Process is for cases of unauthorised leave in term time of 10 days or more or 5 days G codes and 10 sessions of other unauthorised absence prior to that.

For further information about pupil attendance, please contact the Education Legal Intervention Team on attendance@birmingham.gov.uk
