Children missing education

The Local Government Association (LGA) has published a report looking at children missing out on a formal full-time education in England. The report, commissioned in December 2019, estimates that in 2018/19 more than a quarter of a million children may have missed out on a formal full-time education which equates to around 2% of children of school age. The report looks at: who the children missing out on a formal full time education are; how many children fit this description; what evidence there is for the long-term impact of children missing education; and how local and national government might work together to address this issue.
