Attendance

 
From September 2015 the persistent absence threshold changed from 15% to 10%. The DfE also announced that Persistent Absence will now be based on 6 half-terms for pupils aged 5-14 at the start of the academic year.
 
A further change to the methodology means that pupils will be classified as persistent absentees if they miss 10% or more of their own individual possible sessions, rather than reaching a standard threshold of absence sessions, based on the total number of sessions in the term/year. For example: a pupil who attended a school for 1 week, but was absent for 1 day, will now be classed as a persistent absentee, as they will have been absent for 20% of their own individual possible sessions. This information is collected via the school census report.
 
Please help us and your child by ensuring that their attendance remains above 95%.
