Attendance Panels

Panels are held once a month in each of the academies, and parents will receive a written invitation with the date and time of their appointment.  The Attendance staff on the panels will be offering the parent(s) the opportunity to explain absences, and any issues that may be impacting on attendance from the academy.  Where pupils are in Year 2, 6 or 11 the panels can be held as soon as the need arises to establish a fast track return to school.

The panel will then complete an Action Plan which is then monitored by the academy.  If improvement is not made within the timescales then a discussion is held with Mr Dominic Davison (Group Education Welfare Officer) to establish the next stage of intervention.

What is the purpose of the meeting?

  • It is an opportunity to resolve attendance problems and avoid legal proceedings.
  • Explain the consequences of poor attendance.
  • Enables the parent to contribute to a plan to improve the pupils attendance.
  • The meeting is set up to move the situation forward not to cover old ground.
  • Can be used as evidence in the court process.
  • The intended outcome is for a plan to be agreed that will improve the pupils attendance at school and a review date to be set.
  • If there is no change in the pupils school attendance it can lead to prosecution in court.
