Regular attendance and punctuality at school is essential if pupils are to achieve their full potential.

Regular attendees make better progress academically and socially. They find school routines and school work easier to cope with. Regular attendees also find learning more satisfying and have an easier transfer to their next school.

We aim to ensure that pupils’ attendance is as good as possible. This means meeting or exceeding the Borough target of 96%.

National Attendance Data can be found on the DfEs Data Dashboard.
