Outstanding attendance linked to academic success

During the summer, we were delighted to report another set of excellent results for our Year 11 pupils, which saw a significant number of our pupils achieve fantastic grades. Our analysis has shown that:

The vast majority of pupils who missed less than 10 days of school achieved the grades in both English, Maths and the other subjects required to enable them to study the qualifications needed for the country’s best universities.

Pupils who missed less than 10 days of school were more likely tomeet the requirements for Sixth Form or Level 3 courses, rather than Level 2 (GCSE level) courses, including English and Maths re-sits.

Good attendance during the mock exams is incredibly important. Mock exams allow your child to prepare for their real exams in the summer and provide an opportunity for teachers to feed back, identify subject areas which require more focus and revision and identify areas for support. We know that parents and carers have a significant impact, and we would really appreciate your help and support in ensuring that your child comes to school every day so that they can get the best possible outcomes.  We want to work with you to achieve this – please email enquiry@decschool.co.uk with the subject – ‘For the attention of X – Head of House for X – Attendance’ if there is anything we can do to support you or your child.
