Professionals: Refer a child missing education
Children missing education (CME) are children of compulsory school age who are not registered pupils at a school and are not receiving suitable education in another setting – either privately or at home.
When to use this form
Where there is a concern that a child’s safety or their wellbeing is at risk, it is essential to take action without delay – these cases should be referred to children's social care.
If you know of a child who is missing education please use this form to refer them to our CME Team for tracking and support.
