Attendance vs Days off school

  • A calendar year has 365 days, or 52 weeks or 12 months
  • A school year has 195 days, or 39 weeks or 6 terms
  • INSET School Training Days total 5 in each year
  • Pupils expected to attend 190 days
  • School day is divided into two sessions, therefore, pupils should have 380 sessions a year.

Lansdowne’s Attendance Target is 96%.

  • 1 Day off per school year means attendance will only ever reach 99.5%
  • 10 Days off per school year means attendance will only ever reach 94.7%
  • 20 Days off per school year means attendance will only ever reach 90%

Poor school attendance can result in:

  • Academic Underachievement
  • Difficulty in making or keeping friendship groups
  • Loss of child’s confidence and self-esteem

Research has proved that children who have poor school attendance when at Primary Schools are more likely to truant when in secondary school.
