In-depth article
How do I know if my school's attendance is good? We suggest questions you could ask the senior leadership team about attendance. We also look at national attendance data and how Ofsted will use your figures. Ofsted and the DfE do not set numerical definitions of 'good' or 'outstanding' attendance.
