In order for students to achieve success it is crucial that they attend school. According to the Department for Education, if a student is absent for:
5 or more days for any reason in a term, this is classified as having habitual non-attendance issues
10 or more days for any reason in a term, this is classified as having chronic non-attendance issues
To support students to achieve their best, Modbury High School has incorporated increased student attendance as a target in our site improvement plan.
The school aims to achieve a 95% attendance rate for students throughout the academic year and all members of the school community, staff, students and parents/guardians have responsibilities to fulfil this.
