This was the overall pupil attendance level for the last full academic year (2014/15):

Overall attendance rate                                                96.1%.

Percentage of sessions of authorised absence            3.3%

Percentage of sessions of unauthorised absence        0.4%

This represents a continued improvement over the past four years. Unauthorised absences were either for taking holidays during term time or where the school was not notified of the reason for a child’s absence. Our target for 2015/16 is 97%.

The Governing Body of Bishop Ridley has stipulated that no holidays taken during term time will be authorised, except in extenuating circumstances. This is in line with Bexley’s official policy and Government guidelines.
