Live Attendance Data

Attendance is incredibly important to the education of our children and makes a big difference to a child’s ability to do well at school.

Studies show that an attendance level of less than 96% will have an impact on a child’s ability to be successful at school. Below 90% and things start getting really hard.

Each week our classes compete to have the highest attendance percentage, with the highest scoring class at the end of term getting an extra special treat. 

Whole-school attendance percentage for the year to date and the previous week:

100-96% – Best chance of success

95-91% – Less chance of success

Below 90% – Makes it hard to progress
