An annual report showing data on authorised and unauthorised absenteeism by pupils of compulsory school age, including information on school type, gender, free school meal eligibility and length of absence.
- In 2013/14, 6.4 per cent of half-day school sessions were missed due to overall absence and 1.3 per cent of half-day school sessions were missed due to unauthorised absence from maintained secondary, special and independent schools.
- In general, overall absence has been falling since 2005/06. In 2013/14, overall absenteeism continued to fall, dropping by 1.0 percentage points since the previous year. Although unauthorised absenteeism did not change between 2012/13 and 2013/14, if you compare it with 2007/08, over six years it has decreased by 0.5 percentage points.
- The percentage of pupils who had no absence from maintained secondary schools in 2013/14 reached its highest value since pupil-level absenteeism data were collected for the first time in 2007/08, 8.1 per cent.
- The percentage of persistent absentees in maintained secondary schools has decreased every year since 2007/08. It is now half what it was six years ago, showing a drop of 5.0 percentage points from 10.0 per cent in 2007/08 to 5.0 per cent in 2013/14.
- Nearly 60 per cent of absenteeism was due to illness.
