The effect of absence on progress

 

A whole year has 365 days, a school year has 190 days. 

 

 
 

Every school day counts towards your child’s future. Days off school add up to lost learning.

In total there are 175 non-school days a year. This gives families the opportunity to:

  • Spend time together
  • Go on family visits
  • Go on holiday
  • Go shopping
  • Go on days out
  • Attend routine appointments

 

Going on holiday during term time, has a negative affect on children’s learning and ability to achieve. If your child goes on holiday during term time,  it counts as absence. 

 

  • 10 days absence = 95% attendance
  • 19 days absence = 90% attendance
  • 29 days absence = 85% attendance
  • 38 days absence = 80% attendance
  • 47 days absence = 75% attendance
