The Department for Education has published a behaviour and attendance checklist to support school leaders in re-engaging all pupils, from the autumn term.
This sits alongside the full opening guidance which was published earlier this month. This guidance is for schools, school partners and local authorities on the work they will need to do to ensure all pupils attend school regularly and have the right behaviour policies and practises in place ahead of welcoming all pupils back this autumn. The checklist is a tool for mainstream schools to support the re-engagement of pupils. School leaders can use the checklist to develop their own plans, in a way that works for their pupils’ needs and school context.
