WORKING TOGETHER TO IMPROVE ATTENDANCE
Very many students attend every school session throughout the academic year yet overall attendance rates in the Federation’s schools are not always as high as they should be. If young people are to achieve their potential, good attendance and punctuality are critical. The link between attendance and achievement is well documented. Irregular attendance has a significant impact on student achievement as they get behind with their work and lose out on friendships. Parents have a legal duty to make sure that their child aged 5-16 attends that school regularly.
