Understanding Attendance: Implementing Strategies With Impact

Event breakdown

Following the launch of our first Understanding Attendance report and webinar into the drivers of our pupil absence in England, this follow-up report shared what we’re learning from schools about how to sustainably improve attendance.

Having reached over 50,000 pupils and 350 schools, Understanding Attendance is the largest research project of its kind. This event brought together practitioners and school leaders to spotlight the practices they are using to address pupil absence building on findings from the project. You can access the recording below.

Please see below for a brief outline of what the session includes:

  • Presentation of summary of findings from our second report, looking at any key changes in the data since January
  • Introduction to our panel of school leaders involved in the project
  • Panel discussion on attendance and implementing strategies with impact
