Attendance for the whole academy is currently at 97.1%.
We are now well into the Autumn term and attendance is looking good!
Attendance for the whole academy is currently at 97.1%. This is a good increase on last year’s 97.0% for the same period. Our academy attendance target this year is a minimum of 96.6%.
We have had an extremely good start to 2017, last week we had 9 classes with an attendance above our target. We had 2 classes with the joint highest attendance and winners of the attendance cup, they were 1W and FC with an outstanding 100%. In 3rd place was FB with 99.0%, well done.
Persistent absence (P.A.) has also fallen! Last year at this point in November our P.A. rate was 9.43%. With the continued effort from everybody at the Flying Bull Academy we have now lowered P.A. to 6.82%, 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.
