It is through good attendance that pupils maximise their full potential, enhancing their life chances for the future. Missing school means missing out on learning and this can have an impact on a child’s development and attainment. There is a strong statistical link between attendance and attainment.
The law states that children of statutory school age who are on roll at a school or academy must attend regularly and punctually. Regular attendance is important, because it is the best way of ensuring children make the most of the educational opportunities available to them.
|In an academic year:||= number of days absent||Approximate number of weeks||= number of lessons missed|
|90%||19 Days||4 Weeks||114 Lessons|
|85%||29 Days||6 Weeks||174 Lessons|
|80%||38 Days||8 Weeks||228 Lessons|
If your child is unwell or unable to attend school, please log this via the absence report section on EduLink One by 9am on each day of absence.
