School Attendance Panel (SAP) Meeting
This meeting is very similar to the School Attendance Meeting, except that Mrs Sutton, our Senior Lead for Attendance, leads it. The Local Authority Attendance and Inclusion Officer may also join this meeting.
The meeting is again a chance for you to tell us about anything that is stopping you from bringing your child every day.
At this meeting, a decision to agree to a parenting contract, seek advice about taking legal action or refer to another service such as MAST will be taken.
Again there will be an expectation for improved attendance as soon as possible, and we will try to find ways to support you in achieving this.
It is very important that you tell us if you cannot come to the meeting so that another date and time can be agreed. Eventually, the meeting will go ahead, even if you do not come.
