Curriculum outline

Attendance leads to success!

Do you know the level of your child’s attendance?

What does good attendance mean?

Year 10 information evening

90% Attendance?

1 School year at 90% attendance = 4 whole weeks of lessons missed!

90% attendance over 5 school years = half a school year missed!!

Research suggests that 17school days missed a year = 1 GCSE grade drop (DfE)

The greater the attendance the greater the achievement.
