Exploring the Links Between Behaviour and Attendance in Schools
There is no doubt that COVID-19 and the unprecedented closure of the nation's schools during the pandemic has had a long lasting effect on pupil attendance. In the last academic year, 22.3% of pupils missed more than one in 10 sessions, roughly double the proportion of 2018-19.
Improving attendance in schools is vital for pupil wellbeing and development, and it also helps foster positive behaviour and empower students academically, socially and emotionally.
