Attendance in school can be skewed by our small roll. Attendance last year ran at 95.34%, a dip which is explained by the 51.3% attendance of one pupil who joined in January with preexisting non-attendance issues. Attendance in 2018 was strong, exceeding the county's target of 96%. The dip to 94.9% in 2017 was largely affected by a child's absence for a half term due to family emergency.
The government's target for pupil attendance is at least 95%, Cumbria's target is 96%. Parents should follow the link to read more about the basis for this information. The effect that absence has on children's educational development is documented here.
