Children Missing in Education - CME
Children Missing Education (CME) are children of compulsory school age who are not registered pupils at a school and are not receiving suitable education otherwise than at a school.
Our Education Welfare Service is on hand to provide schools with information they need to take immediate action and risk assess children missing education.
This also includes advice on when schools should make referrals to Brent Family Front Door or call the police. The EWS will take referrals from schools for CME on the 3rd day of absence.
The school has a duty to refer any child, where they have left SASF but not joined another school setting or agreed with the LA to home school.
