Children missing from education

It is Southwark Council’s legal duty to ensure that every child in Southwark receives an education.

Please contact us if you think a child is missing from education because they do not have a school place, or are not receiving any kind of formal education. You can refer directly to us by completing our online referral form.

We have information on attendance and truancy for children who have a school place but aren't attending.

If you wish to discuss any issues or concerns, call 020 7525 0528, 020 7525 0428 or email
