Reducing Persistent Absence
The Persistent Absence threshold is now <90% and the way Government collects and collates your PA data has also changed.
Course duration: half-day
Suitable for: SLT Lead, Attendance Managers and staff with responsibility for pupil attendance
The course is intended to help delegates:
- To use the census thresholds to identify persistent absence at an early stage
- To confidently analyse data to inform action planning
- To identify pupils at risk of becoming or who are already PA
- To work effectively with parents to improve attendance where there is PA or high levels of authorised illness absence
