For many young people attendance at school feels impossible. From criminal exploitation and other safeguarding issues to school avoidance and mental health barriers, there are so many reasons why this is.

Some students, when they do attend, fail to engage in lessons and/or struggle to obey school rules. Many of those who disengage are vulnerable learners who need our help to attend, be attentive and achieve their potential.

This webinar discussed some of these barriers and, more importantly, what schools can do to remove or reduce them and improve the attendance and punctuality of vulnerable students. The panel explored the causes of disengagement and suggest practical solutions.
