Persistent Absence
21 Oct
All schools (excluding special schools) Medway now uses the school census to calculate and monitor persistent absence. Schools (excluding special schools) will no longer need to send the persistent absence return to Medway. Reports developed by SIMs for Medway Council will still be updated yearly by Medway (reflecting the new term dates) and uploaded for school’s internal use. Special schools The school census collects absence data yearly rather than termly, so we cannot monitor special schools in the same way. We request that special schools continue to submit their persistent absence return. This will only be after each term has ended for example, Autumn: Term 1 to 2, Spring: Term 1 to 4 and Summer: Term 1 to 6. Persistent absence Term 1 to 2 will be due on 8/01/2019. The report and further guidance can be found on our website; If you require any assistance please contact Performance and Intelligence Team by emailing or by telephoning 01634 332613, 337088, 337086 or 01634 338180
