The Barking and Dagenham Attendance Team works with our Attendance Officer Abbie Vincent to advise on attendance management issues and to take referrals on pupils who attend irregularly.
The attendance officers visit parents and pupils in their homes and undertake assessments of the causes of poor school attendance and then identify strategies and action plans to resolve difficulties and improve school attendance.
In situations where parents fail to ensure regular school attendance, the Access and Attendance Team will consider issuing a Fixed Penalty Notice - £60 payable within 21 days, rising to £120 payable within 22-28 days. Non-payment will result in prosecution.
