Can I choose to keep my child #SafeAtHome?

Action to take if you believe keeping your child home is the right thing to do

⭐ Try to keep a positive relationship with your school, but be absolutely firm.

⭐ Don’t be bullied or rushed, and keep your cool – difficult though it may be.

⭐ Firmly state that you will not be sending your child in. Ask for home learning, and for authorised absence.

⭐ Ensure that you have a paper trail of all communications, and that communication happens regularly (this prevents sneaky offrolling).

⭐ You may find it helpful to refer to the Department of Education confirmation obtained by Public Interest Law Centre that Head Teachers have the discretionary power to authorise absence.https://www.pilc.org.uk/blog/
