BACME

The Behaviour, Attendance and Children Missing Education (BACME) Service is a Council service formed from a number of legacy Council services.

One of the current government's policies is to improve behaviour and attendance in schools. They are enhancing reforms to make sure teachers have the necessary powers to maintain discipline and improve attendance in schools. The schools white paper 'The importance of teaching' set out the government's commitment to give teachers more powers to deal with disruptive behaviour in school.

We offer a range of  guidance for schools and colleges on behaviour, school attendance and licensing.
