We place heavy emphasis on attendance here at Old Hall. Ensuring that your child attends school on time each day is vital in ensuring that they reach their full potential. We celebrate attendance in our newsletters and ask for our parents and carers full support in ensuring that your child's attendance is at least 96%, our whole school target.
What is good attendance?
There is sometimes a perception that an attendance rate of 90% is good. This is because an examination score of 90% means excellence. However, as an attendance rate, 90% is unsatisfactory, it equates to missing 20 days per year. We consider below 92% as approaching persistent absence. Our Old Hall whole school attendance target this year is 96%.
