We received notification that our attendance rate for this academic year is in the top 10% of all schools nationally. This week it was confirmed that we are in fact in the top 1% of all FFT secondary schools in the country for attendance and in the top 20 schools nationally. I would like to thank all parents and carers for their support in ensuring that their child has strong attendance. The evidence demonstrates that pupils with at least 97% attendance achieve well. The evidence also demonstrates that those with below 97% do not achieve well, which is why we place so much emphasis on the importance of strong attendance. A reminder that we are organising an attendance rewards trip at the end of the spring term.
