Data taken from "Working Together to improve school attendance" DfE May 2022:
Good attendance is therefore an essential foundation to positive outcomes and is everyone's responsibility.
Our school attendance target is 97%. In order to achieve this, out of 190 school days, a child should only be absent for 5.7 days.
We monitor attendance in sessions. Each day has 2 sessions, morning and afternoon. 5.7 days = 11 sessions. This is why we notify parents/carers when a child has missed 10 sessions in order to identify any barriers to good attendance and the support we can offer to improve it.
