Pupil Absence last update : (11 Dec 2013)


  School England - national (secondary state-funded)
8.1% 5.8%
13.7% 6.5%

Please note - this year the Department will publish full year 2013/14 absence data in the performance tables in March 2015 rather than just the autumn and spring term data in December as in previous years, and we will continue to do so in future years. This is because the full year data provides the most robust indication of school absence rates.
School level information for the 2013/14 autumn and spring term only is available in our Statistical First Release here
