EVERY SCHOOL DAY COUNTS
Attendance percentages can be misleading. Consider the following:
100% Attendance = 0 Days Missed = Excellent- Gives your child the best chance of success and gets them off to a flying start.
95% Attendance = 9 Days of Absence = Satisfactory - 1 week and 4 Days of Learning Missed
90% Attendance = 19 Days of Absence 3 Weeks and 4 Days of Learning Missed – Poor- Less chance of success. Makes it harder to progress
85% Attendance = 27 Days of Absence 5 Weeks and 3 Days of Learning Missed - Very Poor-
Almost half a term missed . Serious implications on learning and progress.
80% Attendance = 36 Days of Absence 7 Weeks and 3 Days of Learning Missed- Unacceptable-
Half a term missed
75% Attendance = 45 Days of Absence 9 Weeks and 1 Day of Learning Missed – Unacceptable-
Almost 1 whole term missed
If your child has 90% attendance they will have the equivalent of:
• ½ a day off per week,
• 19 days off per year
• 247 days off over their school career of 13 academic years, equivalent to over 1 year of lost education.
Consider what this means for 80% or even 75% attendance
