Full attendance at school is vitally important for your child's well-being and progress.
With attendance figures less than 90%, children are missing half a day each week. This equates to 19 full days (nearly four weeks) each school year. This totals 28 weeks lost if attendance is always this poor through a child’s primary school life (Early Years to Year 6). This is only 10 weeks short of a full year missed from their education before they reach secondary school.
