Pupils’ attendance improving at Isle of Wight schools

Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 17:24

RAPIDLY improving school attendance levels in Isle of Wight schools led to a visit by Ofsted.
Inspectors from the education watchdog were shown the methods used by Isle of Wight Council to improve attendance in primary schools by more than 1.5 per cent to over 96 per cent, and in secondary schools by more than 2.5 per cent to over 94 per cent.
The council said it had worked closely with schools, pupils and parents to tackle poor attendance, including identifying and supporting children at risk of becoming persistent absentees, and working with public health officers to help families on the management of illnesses.
Enforcing powers laid down by central government on taking time away from school during term time had also contributed to the figures, the authority said.
