Access to the Service (Digital Front Door)

If you have any queries, technical issues or would like any further information please speak to your PIAS Officer as detailed below.

The Digital Front Door is a single point of access for all Inclusion and Attendance matters, through the provision of ten online pathways. You will be able to notify the council about an exclusion, part time timetable or when deleting a pupil from the admissions register. You will be able to request a fixed penalty notice be issued, send an invitation to a formal attendance meeting or request statutory attendance intervention. Professionals not based within schools will also be able to seek advice and guidance from PIAS Officers.

The Digital Front Door consists of a series of input screens for data entry. Data is entered using a combination of free text, multiple choice options or drop down menus. You will not be able to progress into further sections if the relevant fields have not been completed.
If you would like more information about the changes to our forms and some answers to the most frequently asked questions please see the School Guide to the Digital Front Door (PDF, 369.3 KB).
