You’ll know that as a school, we monitor attendance closely. Last year, we met our attendance targets, which is great news.
The attendance record for your child’s class – last year’s Y1 class – was broadly the same as Leeds overall, but there were two areas we’d like to improve this year:
- the class’s attendance was lower than other schools of a similar nature,
- the amount of unauthorised absence was significantly higher than similar schools, and even higher than Leeds overall – sadly, this was caused by a few individuals taking term-time holidays.
Please keep an eye on your child’s attendance. Research shows that too many absences affect not only learning but a child’s social and emotional aspects of learning.
