WHy good attendance is important

The world is run by those who turn up!

  • Attending school every day = 100% attendance.
  • Attending 4 1/2 days a week = 90% attendance = 4 weeks missed per year.
  • Attending school 4 days a week = 80% attendance = more than half a term missed per year.
  • Attending 3 1/2 days a week = 70% attendance = more than a quarter of the school year missed.
  • An average attendance of 80% or less across a child's school career adds up to missing 2 whole school years from school. Being late for school reduces learning time.
  • If you are 5 minutes late every day, you will miss 3 days of learning each year.
  • If you are 15 minutes late every day, you will miss 2 weeks of learning each year.

Make every minute count!
