The link between attendance and attainment is clear:

• Nationally in 2018/19 only 36% of persistently absent (less than 90% attendance) children in KS4 achieved a grade between 4 and 9 in their English and Maths GCSEs compared with 84% of those who are regular attenders to school.

It’s never too late to benefit from good attendance:

• More than half (54%) of pupils who were persistently absent in Year 10 and then rarely absent in Year 11, passed at least 5 GCSEs, compared to 36% of pupils who were persistently absent in both years.

Attendance is important for more than just attainment:

• Regular school attendance can facilitate positive peer relationships, which is a protective factor for mental health and wellbeing.
