All parents have a legal duty to ensure that if their child is of compulsory school age that they receive a full time education, either by attendance at school or otherwise.</p><p>Schools should continually monitor pupils’ absence. If a child’s absence reaches a level of concern, the school should raise this with the parents and the local authority in the best interest of the child’s education. School and local authorities should consider the individual circumstances of each case and take the appropriate course of action to ensure the child receives consistent education. This can include the use a range of parental responsibility measures to provide support or sanctions to parents when their child’s attendance at school becomes a problem.</p><p>Schools also receive pupil premium funding to support pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, and have the flexibility to use it to improve attendance if this is deemed a priority.</p><p> </p><p>The Department wants all children and young people, regardless of special educational need or disability, to receive the right support to succeed in their education. and as they move into adult life. In 2014, the Department introduced significant reforms to enable schools to put the right support in place for those pupils so that they can attend school.</p><p>The Department has established a new Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) stakeholder group, chaired by the noble Baroness Whitaker. This group aims to ensure that any efforts to improve the school system take into account GRT pupils’ needs.</p>

Where the total number of BAME staff is fewer than 5, the actual number is suppressed to protect anonymity. The following agencies are included in these figures: Education &amp; Skills Funding Agency, Standards &amp; Testing Agency and Teaching Regulation Agency.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Grade</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number of BAME staff (headcount)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Grade 7</p></td><td><p>174</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Grade 5 (Deputy Director)</p></td><td><p>12</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Grade 3 (Director)</p></td><td><p>Fewer than 5</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The department has an internal Diversity &amp; Inclusion Strategy with a priority of increasing BAME representation at senior grades. We have introduced a range of interventions to attract and recruit more people from diverse backgrounds that include anonymised sifting and more diverse interview panels and we expect to see an improvement in these numbers over the next 2 to 5 years. We recently launched Project Race which aims to improve race equality and tackle disproportionate outcomes for BAME colleagues though outreach, support, and open honest discussion.</p>
