The 'Spotlight on Attendance' course familiar to many Birmingham schools, finished its 'run' at the end of 2017. This process is no longer used.
The new, streamlined process known as Fast Track Prosecution has been in place since January of this year (2018). Now extended to a full day, the training includes case studies and more detailed input regarding early help. This offers participants an opportunity to explore particular scenarios that affect a range of primary, secondary and special schools. We hope this extended training will assist in implementing prosecution processes where necessary, but also address pre-prosecution alternative support mechanisms to raise attendance through early help.
Suitable for: All Academies and Maintained Schools, Designated Liaison Person for pupil attendance; Head teachers; SLT Attendance Leads; Attendance Managers with leadership responsibility for attendance.
