We work with children, their families and other agencies to help make sure that all children receive an education.

This document sets out procedures to be followed should any pupil not be collected from a school, setting or after school childcare provision at the usual times.

This policy has been agreed between Merton Council’s Children, Schools and Families Department, Merton Local Safeguarding Children Board and the Metropolitan Police.
