The aim of Fast Track is to work in partnership with parents to improve school attendance. It is an incentive designed to raise individual and whole school attendance.
The programme raises parents/carers, pupils and community awareness of the importance of school attendance, the negative impact of absence and demonstrates that the Local Authority uses statutory powers to bring about change.
The programme is runby the school and supported by the legal intervention team that can and will take legal action to ensure that parents/carers fulfil their legal responsibilities.
The school publicises our use of the programme and informs parents/carers who are entered into the programme by letter. Parents/carers will be expected to work with the school to improve attendance. The school will inform all parents/carers of the outcomes following the Fast Track completion.
