How do we compare to other years?

So far this year we are running at 79.4% attendance.

This compares to:

  • 79% for 2011

  • 83% for 2012

  • 83% for 2013

  • 85% for 2014

  • 83% for 2015

The 4% difference between last year and this year equates to about 12 children a day.


Trends

As in the past, children’s attendance improves as they get older. In this case increasing from 73% in year 1 to 82% in year 6. I think this is a standard trend over the whole of the country.

There is no longer a significant difference between bi-lingual and other classes.


Half of our pupils attend school 80% of the time.

So far this year we have

  • 24 pupils at or above 95% attendance

  • 36 pupils 90-95%

  • 51 pupils 85-89%

  • 46 pupils 80-84% (1 day/week absent)

  • 36 pupils 75-79%

  • 19 pupils 70-74%


  • 7 pupils attend below 50% although two of those are justified



Our problem day…. Friday

Almost 30% of absences are on a Friday and about a quarter on Monday and, surprisingly, Wednesday. (Note this is 30% of absences, not 30% absent)

Almost all absences (76%) are unjustified, particularly on Fridays and Mondays.


On an average Friday, we have about 80 pupils absent.
