Attendance Above Target
Attendance Up and Persistent Absence Down!
We are now well into the Spring term and attendance is looking good!
Attendance for the whole academy is currently at 96.6%. This is a massive increase on last year’s 95.8% for the same period. Our academy attendance target this year is a minimum of 96.2%.
We have had an extremely good start to 2017, last week we had 10 classes with an attendance above our target. We had 2 classes with the joint highest attendance and winners of the attendance cup, they were 6G and 4B with an outstanding 100%. In 3rd place was 2B with 99.4%, well done.
Persistent absence has also fallen! Last year at this point in January our persistent absence rate was 16.5%. With the continued effort from everybody at The Flying Bull Academy we have now lowered persistent absence rate to 6.5%. This is a massive improvement.
This continued growth in attendance has only been achieved because of the hard work, effort and support from all of our pupils, parents and carers. Thank you.
Reminder – The government consider every child below 90.0% attendance (red category) to be persistently absent. The Parents/Carers of these children may find themselves being issued with PNW (penalty notice warning) and may face legal proceedings from the Local Authority.
