What is the impact of absence on my child?
Consistent attendance is crucial for academic progress. Absences can result in gaps in learning and may require additional support to catch up, impacting both your absent child and their peers.
DID YOU KNOW?
If your child has 90% attendance you think that looks acceptable... but it is not!
This is equivalent of:
- one half day of learning missed every week.
- four whole weeks of learning missed in the school year.
- half a school year of learning missed over five years.
