Attendance

School attendance is mandatory during term times with the expectation that a child of compulsory school age, registered at a school, has an attendance of 100% unless there is a statutory reason for absence. Attendance of 90% or lower is of concern and defined by the DfE as Persistent Absence.

Excellent attendance is key for ensuring positive outcomes for children and young people. Missing school leaves children vulnerable to falling behind, achieving poorer outcomes at both primary and secondary level as well as post 16 choices and outcomes.
