The Education Support Service (ESS) undertakes investigations into complaints raised by schools when a child exhibits unauthorised absence and all attempts to engage parents have failed.

These statutory services are free at the point of referral to all education providers, whether they are a maintained, an academy, a free or independent school or any provider to education of children of compulsory school age, unless educated otherwise than at school.
