PVS has some of the most hardest to reach young children across the Authority and beyond. 3 of these young people over the Autumn and Spring term account for a 1% difference in the attendance alone. The illness period that swept through the school (staff and students) has had a very detrimental effect on our target figure of 91% for the year. It has had a 4% effect on our figures for one half term alone.
We have larger % of students attending PVS this term with greater need. Banding for two students has already been increased. Cohort attendance for Y7 & 8, LAC, year 9, and 10 remains to be outstanding.
77% of students have a whole school individual attendance that is good or better (an 8% increase compared to Autumn Term). This rises to 88% without our EIP and Pathways cohort. Students who have a PA figure (i.e.) an attendance below 85% -13/44 (29%) Spring Term. This is a 1% decrease compared to Autumn Term. This reduces to only 4 children (12%) without our EIP and Pathways cohort.
