Good attendance is vital for children to achieve well and be happy at school. Children with 80% attendance are missing an average of one day every week which adds up to two whole years of missed school, by the time they are in Year 11. Similarly, attendance of 90% may sound good but it is a half day missed each week, and a year of missed education by the time they are 16.
