Persistent absence is of particular national, local and individual concern,

  • it reduces opportunity for children and young people to fulfil their educational potential;
  • reduces opportunity for further learning and employment;
  • increases the risk of being involved in antisocial behaviour and crime.

Preventing and reducing persistent absence is the mission of Attendance Plus.

How we achieve this:

  • Seek to understand the concern by looking at the size, scope, characteristics and consequences of persistent absence.
  • Determine the causes and correlates of persistent absence.
  • Establish the factors that increase or decrease the risk of persistent absence.
  • Design and implement meaningful support.
  • Collaborate with families and schools to improve attendance and work towards better outcomes.
