It’s about aspiration…
… But not about overstretching
GCSE’s – single or double awards
BTEC courses – coursework focus
ASDAN – vocational coursework focus
Do you know the level of your child’s attendance?
What does good attendance mean?
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.
