Every Day Counts and we strive for 100% attendance and punctuality

For each percentage attendance we show the number of weeks absence this represents.

Attendance over 1 school year 

Percentage Weeks absent from School
96% 1 week plus
95% 2 weeks
90% 4 weeks
85% 5.5 weeks
80% 7.5 weeks

Attendance over 5 school years

Percentage Weeks absent from School
96% 5.5 weeks
95% 9.5 weeks
90% 19 weeks (half a school year)
85% 28.5 weeks
