Parents of children who are failing to engage with home schooling have been warned that work at home is still expected to be completed or they could be marked absent.

Instructions from the Education Authority say that schools should investigate why work is not being done.

And should there be no valid reason for the disengagement from school work, pupils will be marked as absent - something which could go on their permanent school attendance record.
