The whole school attendance for February was 95.37% slightly below our floor target of 96%. Sickness has not been a major factor throughout February, however unauthorised absences are up, which is the reason for the drop. In January there were 15 days relating to unauthorised absence, this month there have been 21 days. Unauthorised absences can be under various circumstances, i.e. holidays in term time or days off without providing a reason. Unauthorised absences DO add up and ARE monitored and referred. There are ways you can avoid these absences building up, in the first instance please ensure you contact school with a reason for their absence. Children are unwell from time to time, so don’t allow their illness to be recorded as unauthorised.
The February attendance by year group is as follows:
Year 3 – 92.35% – Come on year 3
Year 4 – 95.00%
Year 5 – 98.07% – EXCELLENT YEAR 5 – TOP AGAIN!
Year 6 – 96.39% – Brilliant increase from January
