Attendance - well done!

 

This year, since September, our attendance as a whole school has been much better than last year.  For the first time in a while, we are above the national average.  Though this is only by 1%, it is significant.  Thank you for sending your children to school and bucking the national trend.

 

Attendance Figures

Burleigh

95.4%

National

94.4%

 

The table below, which we have put on our noticeboards at the entrance to the school, shows the impact of just a few days absence on your child’s education.  Anyone whose attendance is at or below 90% is considered to be a persistent absentee.  Our persistent absentee rate is running at 12%.  The national average is 17.6%.  Once again, thank you for all you do to support your child’s education.

 

 

Ofsted Parent View

The following table shows the results from our recent Ofsted Inspection (Nov 2023) in which you responded to a request to give your opinions on Burleigh.  We would like to thank you for participating.  In total, 60 parents participated.  (Due to rounding, figures may not always total 100.)
