Attendance Information

Term time absences.

It is a statutory requirement for all schools to attain attendance levels set by the Government. Coleman Primary School's attendance target this year is 96%. However the aim is for all individual pupils to have 100% attendance.


If a child’s attendance falls below 90% they will be deemed a Persistent Absentee. See policy attached for full details.


Coleman Primary School bands its pupils attendance as below:

100% - outstanding

98.01% - 99.9% (with no unauthorised absence) excellent

96.01% - 98% (with no unauthorised absence) good

90.01% - 96% concerns or requires improvement

90% and under - persistent absentee
