Spreadsheet containing secondary school analysis of attendance and absence codes. The workbook provides an analysis of absence for any purpose, depending on the data input, and thus is a valuable additional tool for school improvement.
Workbook to enable the schools and LAs to support improvements in school attendance. Allows the analysis of all codes for absence and approved educational activity. Charts are automatically generated to analyse the data by each individual code by year group, whole-school overall absence, whole-school approved educational activity, overall absence for each year group, authorised absence for each year group and unauthorised absence for each year group. The charts give a pictorial representation of absence supplemented by data labels that show the actual number of sessions lost and the proportion they represent as a percentage.
