Good attendance is vital if your child is to achieve their full potential at school. Below is an example of how days off school can impact on overall attendance rates. It is also vital that your child be in school on time every day. If they are late they miss the beginning of lessons and it can be very disruptive for both the Teacher and other pupils in class.
At Holy Cross we want to ensure that every child is in school each day. If for any reason your child is absent we can offer support to you by:
Organising an appointment with the School Nurse to discuss medical needs
Our Family Support Worker can offer you advice on routines both at bedtime and in the morning to ensure that your child is punctual
The Education Welfare Officer can also offer support and advice.
The attendance target for our school set by the local authority is 96%.
A year has 365 days, 52 weeks, and 12 months.
A school year has 195 days, 39 weeks, and 6 half terms.
Five days in each school year are training days for teachers (= INSET days)
Pupils attend school therefore for 190 days.
A school day is divided into two sessions. A pupil therefore should attend school for 380 sessions.
• One day off per school year means that a pupil has about 99.5% attendance.
• Ten days off per school year means that a pupil has about 94.7% attendance.
• Twenty days off per school year means that a pupil has about 90% attendance
• 90% attendance means 4 whole weeks off school.
• 17 days off school every year means that you will probably obtain a whole grade lower than you are really capable of.
