Please can we ask all parents and carers to help support us in improving our attendance so that we can give your child/ren the best education. We are sure you will agree that they deserve nothing less.
This is a table showing the impact of poor attendance and what it looks like in terms of missing school days and lessons.
|For 1 year: Child’s attendance
|How many days of education the child is missing
|How many weeks of educations the child is missing
|How many lessons a child is missing in a year
|95%||9 days||2 weeks||50 lessons a year missed|
|90%||19 days||4 weeks||100 lessons a year missed|
|86%||29 days||6 weeks||150 lessons a year missed|
|80%||38 days||8 weeks||200 lesson a year missed|
|75%||48 days||10 weeks||250 lessons a year missed.|
This shows why 96% must be our target and why good attendance is so important.
