The importance of attendance

The Stour Academy Trust have created an animated video explaining the importance of having good attendance at school.

Did you know that although an attendance percentage of 90% doesn’t sound that significant, it is the equivalent of 3 weeks and 4 days of learning missed?

Watch the video below:

The animation’s creator, Rob Butterworth said:

“As a Trust with over 1,000 pupils, our schools do all that they can to encourage excellent attendance. We wanted to add to the number of successful strategies with something a bit different! Video is such a powerful tool for getting a message out there and we hope that it highlights to parents how important attendance really is.”
