We are very aware of the close link between attendance and achievement in our school. The general rule of thumb is:
‘the higher child’s attendance – the better the child’s progress’.
Schools have to publish rates of attendance which relate to the school year prior to the year of publication.
The official attendance data for 2016-17 should be available in March 2018.
Provisional data for 2016-17:
Number on roll: 205
with Sycamore Class as the 2016-17 Attendance Champions!
Number of children on roll in 2015/16: 190
Attendance: 96.2% (National average: 95.4%)
This data is from official DfE "overall absence" statistics.
The attendance rate for our pupils has continued to be good in the 2015-16 school year & we are still above the national average. Congratulations to pupils, parents & staff for this joint effort. Let's hope the 2016-17 attendance is even better!
Chestnut Class were once again the overall Attendance Champions in 2015-16 - well done!
