Understanding your Child’s Attendance

We categorise attendance according to the following colour coding:

Be aware of how much learning time is lost with increasing numbers of days absent.

Some important facts and figures

  • Students leaving with 5 grade 7 or above at GCSE, over a lifetime, will earn £350,000 more than those leaving with 5 grade 4 or below.
  • Research suggests that 17 missed school days a year (91% attendance) = 1 GCSE grade dropped.
  • If your child has 20 days or more off school in a year their attendance is below 90% (persistent absence)
  • If they have had 10 days or more off school in a year their attendance is below 95%!
