- In 2012/13 6.3 per cent of half day sessions were missed due to overall absence and 0.9 per cent of half-day sessions were missed through unauthorised absence.
- Overall and unauthorised absenteeism have been decreasing since 2009/10, but in 2012/13 the rates of overall and unauthorised absenteeism increased slightly.
- An increase in absence due to illness caused authorised absence to rise in maintained schools in 2012/13.
- The percentage of half-day sessions missed from maintained primary schools due to family holidays did not change between 2011/12 and 2012/13, but the proportion of holidays not authorised by the school increased, leading to an increase in unauthorised absence.
