Attendance league tables

In the latest white paper from Government there is a shared duty to improve school attendance for all children.


Absence at Oakham is closely monitored each week by the attendance team - Miss Stretton, Mrs Francis and Ms Goth.


There are rewards for children for good attendance e.g. certificates and trophies and non uniform days for the best class each half term in each key stage.


There is a clear link between attendance and attainment and below is a table of what your child is missing if they are not in school.
