Attendance Matters

Attendance to school is imperative as there is a high correlation between excellent attendance and attainment. Students who miss school frequently can fall behind with their work and do less well in exams. Good attendance also shows potential employers that a young person is reliable.

Days absent Missed time Attendance

0 days off school in a year

0 lessons missed 100% Perfect attendance
2 days off school in a year 12 lessons missed 99% Excellent attendance
5 days off school in a year 30 lessons missed 97.5% Good attendance
10 days off school in a year 60 lessons missed 95% Slightly below average attendance
14 days off school in a year
(2 weeks)
84 lessons missed 93% Poor attendance
20 days off school in a year 
(4 weeks)
120 lessons missed 89% Very poor attendance
30 days off school in a year
(6 weeks)
180 lessons missed 85% Very poor attendance
40 days off school in a year
(8 weeks)
240 lessons missed 80% Very poor attendance

1 or 2 days absent a week doesn’t seem much but this is how it equates:

If your child misses That equals Which is.. And over 13 years
of schooling that is..
1 day a fortnight 20 days per year 4 weeks per year Nearly 1½ years
1 days a week 40 days per year 8 weeks per year Nearly 2½ years

Punctuality Matters

Missed minutes = missed learning = missed opportunities!

Being frequently late for school means lost learning:

If your child misses That equals Which is..

And over 13 years of
schooling that is

10 minutes per day 50 minutes per week Nearly 1½ weeks per year Nearly ½ year
20 minutes per day 1 hour 40 minutes per week Nearly 2½ weeks per year Nearly 1 year
30 minutes per day Half a day per week 4 weeks per year Nearly 1½ years
1 hour per day 1 day per week 8 weeks per year Nearly 2½ years
