If the local authority thinks a parent needs support getting a child to go to school but the parent is not co-operating, the local authority can apply to a court for an Education Supervision Order. A supervisor will be appointed to help you get your child into education.
A parent can be served with a School Attendance Order if the local authority thinks a child is not receiving an education. Upon receipt, a parent will have 15 days to provide evidence that they have registered a child with a school listed in the order or that the parent is giving them home education. If a parent does not, the local authority could be prosecuted or given a fine.
