"Success doesn't come to you; you have to go to it. Every lesson, every day!"


Attendance Importance

Attendance at school is, in most cases, the single most important factor that effects the chances of success at school. Research has shown that children often do not catch up on work missed, which can have serious consequences for their learning and progress. Research also suggests that 17 School Days missed can mean a GCSE Grade Lost.

We work hard to support our students and their families in having good attendance at school; our aim is to ensure that all our students receive the most from their education. We hope that you find these pages helpful in supporting us in improving attendance even further.

We expect our pupils to maintain attendance at 98% or over throughout the year.

  • 90% =20 school days missed over the year.
  • 85% =30 school days missed over the year.
  • 80% over 5 years = One whole school year missed.
