Children missing from school

The Children’s Commissioner for England has published new research examining the number of looked after children missing from education in England. Findings include: of the 50,846 school-age children in care in England in March 2022, 1,363 (2.7%) were missing from school; and unaccompanied children seeking asylum, male children, older children, children with special educational needs, and children without stable care placements were disproportionately more likely to not be in school.
