    NOT A TEACHER
    It is similar to "slip through the net", in my opinion.
    Please notify me of any mistakes in my posts. It is much appreciated.

    ...which is to be found lower down the page in the Oxford link, under 'Idioms'.

    slip through the net

    when somebody/something slips through the net, an organization or a system fails to find them and deal with them
    We tried to contact all former students, but one or two slipped through the net.
