Attendance Data

Attendance has a direct impact on the progress of children. We work hard at Springbank Primary Academy to encourage children to arrive at school on time every day. This includes pupil attendance advocates and a number of initiatives including 'Don't be Late, School is Great'!

Our target for 2016-17 is to achieve 96%; this means that on average no pupil missed more than 4% of school days (less than eight days). Our target last year was 96% and we very nearly achieved this at 95.91%. Good attendance is a key to any child being able to fulfil their potential and make good progress in school. We have very effective systems in school to monitor attendance and parents of children whose attendance falls below what is acceptable will be subject be invited to meet with the school to discuss how to overcome any issues. We have also appointed a Pupil Welfare Parent Partnership Officer –Mr Barthorpe – who supports children and parents with attendance issues.

The table below shows our attendance record in recent years, and compares it with all primary schoolsEngland and with all schools in Gloucestershire.
