Regular attendance at school is vital to help children achieve and get the best possible start in life.
Children who frequently miss school often fall behind. There is a strong link between good school attendance and achieving good results. For example, only 12% of pupils with below 80% school attendance achieve five or more GCSEs at grades 9-5 including English and Maths, compared to 68% for pupils with attendance greater than 95%.
Good attendance at school shows potential employers that a young person is reliable.
Attendance Week, 16th to 20th July 2018, is a time when we are promoting the benefits of good school attendance. All schools across our Trust will be having a real focus on getting to school on time, every day. Make sure that your child attends school all week for great lessons, rewards and competitions. Remember...every school day counts!
