Attendance and Punctuality
Attendance: Why does it matter?
New Mills School believes that a student’s good attendance and punctuality is vital if they are to gain the most from the education we provide. We believe that to be successful, all learners require the highest level of access, attendance and engagement and we will work closely with all agencies in order to achieve this. The School aims to achieve an attendance target of 97% annually.
Attendance has a major impact on your child’s academic performance:
- Students whose attendance is above 95% will achieve an average of seven or eight GCSE qualifications at grades 9 to 4
- Students whose attendance drops below 93% will attain on average only two or three GCSE qualifications at grades 9 to 4
- Therefore good attendance will have a big influence on your child’s later prospects in adult life
We work with a range of services to support parents and students both in and beyond school.
