Attendance:

This report shows the % attendance of your child this academic year so far.

The minimum expected attendance is 95% and, if attendance is below 90%, children are regarded as persistent absentees. (* Please note that the government have changed the code for COVID absence and therefore this now counts as an ‘authorised absence’).

Number of times late to school:

This shows the number of days in which students have arrived late to school this academic year.
