REMINDER - CHILDREN TO WEAR SCHOOL UNIFORM TOMORROW BUT MAY SUBSTITUTE THEIR SCHOOL JUMPER/CARDIGAN FOR A CHRISTMAS JUMPER. . .                                                                                                                                                            

ATTENDANCE FACTS

 

Something to think about …………


Is 90% attendance good enough?

 

The school year is made up of 190 days of learning ……..

 

Take the example of Jane Brown.  Her attendance is always around 90% and her mum thinks this is excellent!

 

In fact, Jane has missed the equivalent of 4 whole weeks of lessons in the school year.  If Jane continues to attend for only 90% of her Primary School education, she will have missed a total of 23 weeks or 6 months which is over half a school year!

 

Here are some more facts for you ………

 

95% attendance means 10 days of learning have been missed

 

90%     =   20 days

85%     =   30 days

80%     =   40 days

75%     =   50 days

70%     =   60 days

 

How much learning has your child missed?

 
 

THE EXPECTED ATTENDANCE FOR ALL PUPILS IS 96% AND ABOVE

 
  

 

The Head Teacher and the Attendance Advisory Practioner have the responsibility to monitor the attendance of pupils at this school 

The target attendance figure for all students is a minimum of 96% attendance

 

The more your child is at school; the more likely they are to achieve at school and in later life

 

Attendance 97%-100%

EXCELLENT

Your child attends for 97% - 100% of the time this is to be congratulated.

A child absent for one week in the year would equal an attendance statistic of 97%

 

Attendance 96%

EXPECTED ATTENDANCE PERCENTAGE

Research as shown that for children to reach their full potential attendance of 96% is vital

 

Attendance 90%-95%

BELOW EXPECTATIONS

Your child is at risk of under-achieving. This will be monitored closely by the Head Teacher and Attendance Officer. You may be requested to attend a meeting within the school and to provide medical evidence on all future absences

 

Attendance 90% and below

WELL BELOW EXPECTATIONS AND CAUSE FOR CONCERN

Your child is at severe risk of under-achieving. Your child will be referred to the Attendance Advisory Service which may result in court proceedings if attendance does not improve
