The Government regard 95% as the minimum satisfactory attendance for a pupil.
Keeping children away from school for no good reason is a criminal offence
80% attendance is the same as having a day off every week
Keep an eye out for early signs of your child not wanting to go to school, such as moodiness, headaches, or stomach aches, especially at important times like the transition into year 7 or after the school holidays. Act upon these signs early, please don’t be frightened to speak to someone in school
