The Importance of Attendance

We are often found trying to get the message across about the importance of attendance. It is interesting to note that this was also reinforced by another piece of research this week.

This research highlighted that 44% of pupils with no absence in Key Stage 4 achieve the English Baccalaureate - the gold standard package of GCSE qualifications which includes English, Maths, Science, History or Geography and a language.  

However this falls to just 31.7% for pupils who miss 14 days of lessons over the two years that pupils study for their GCSEs and to 16.4% for those who miss up to 28 days.
