The key points from the latest release are:
- Levels of persistent absence amongst pupils in secondary schools are generally higher among pupils living in the north of the country than those living in the south. There is greater variation across the regions for pupils in primary schools with the West Midlands having the highest level of persistent absence and the south east the lowest.
- In all schools, pupils in Yorkshire and the Humber have the highest level of unauthorised absence (1.3% of half days missed), but not the highest level of overall absence which is in the north east (6.1% of half days missed). Pupils in London have the lowest levels of overall absence (5.5% of half days missed) but a relatively high level of unauthorised absence (1.2% of half days missed) compared to pupils in other regions.
