Attendance facts and figures!

At St Andrews we value the importance of good attendance as it has a valuable impact on the education of children. I have found some interesting facts about attendance which highlight how lateness and low attendance can impact on the amount of time in school:

  • 90% attendance means your child has missed 4 weeks of school which is 100 hours of lessons
  • A two week holiday in term time will reduce your child’s attendance to less than 95%
  • Arriving 5 minutes late every day adds up to 3 days lost in a year
  • Arriving 15 minutes late every day is equal to 2 weeks lost in a year

If you ever want to speak to me about attendance issues, or would like some support, please do get in touch. You can book an appointment to see me by talking to the school office or phoning school on 01617903194
