The Central Register of Children receiving less than 25 hours education at a School

24 Nov 2016

Schools and the local authority are required under the Ofsted framework to track and monitor all pupils who are not in school full-time. The LA is expected to maintain a central record of these children.

The aim is to ensure that children have access to their full entitlement to good quality education and that schools’ and local authorities are meeting their statutory duties. This is also driven by concern for the safeguarding of children who are not in school during the normal school day.
In Camden we are collecting this data on a termly basis from all Camden maintained schools. Each school has been asked to name a designated staff member who has access to this information and can liaise with the local authority. To this end a form will be sent to schools shortly after each half-term break – often previous information will just need updating or reconfirming.
