Attendance – why it matters and where responsibility sits: Frequent school attendance is imperative in order for pupils to reach their full potential. Persistent absence is one of the key reasons why pupils achieve low attainment grades; this assumption is something which is widely recognised, yet rarely officially stated. It is, however, reasonable to expect a certain amount of pupil absence during a full school term due to illness, family bereavement or other authorised reasons. Nonetheless, unexplained absences are a key issue and it is the responsibility of schools to inform the LA so that action can be taken. Children, who are of compulsory school age, need to be monitored by the school if they have been absent for an unexplained reason; this is to ensure the pupil’s safety and wellbeing. If a school picks up on a noticeable period of unexplained absences, there are set protocols, outlined in this guidance, which should be carried out. Follow this link to read more.
