While a CME policy isn't in the DfE's list of statutory policies and documents, the statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education expects stake holders at Mossy Lea to:
- Have appropriate safeguarding measures in place when responding to children who go missing from education
- Be aware that CME can be a vital warning sign of a range of safeguarding possibilities
- Know our unauthorised absence and CME procedures
