EIGHT reports, ONE system

Attendance Tracker is EIGHT reports in ONE easy-to-use system. It covers attendance and absence at school level right down to individual pupils. It helps you to identify and analyse attendance issues for specific year groups, pupils groups and individual pupils. Most importantly, it allows you to compare your pupils’ attendance to similar pupils across the country on a week-by-week basis.

Every pupil has a story…

At the core of our system are your pupils. Their attendance journeys are your attendance story. Whether it’s groups of pupils or individual students, Attendance Tracker displays each pupil’s attendance journey, allowing you to identify needs and support children and young people more effectively.

What schools are saying

The attendance tracker looks great and it's really useful getting up to date information..”

I just wanted to say thank you as these reports are amazing! Our attendance officer is absolutely over the moon.”

Attendance Tracker is fantastic. In the past i’ve had to do a lot of manual calculations so Attendance Tracker has made a huge difference.”

The colour coding makes the report very easy to understand.”

This has moved attendance on light years! I now print off the new 360 report for all our Governors and that’s it! I used to produce all this data myself but the new report is simple and saves huge amounts of time.”

Thanks for the development of Attendance Tracker. I think that this will be a really useful tool for us!”

Colleagues will find this really useful, and we really appreciate the hard work, care and consideration that has gone into developing the attendance reports.”

The research behind Attendance Tracker

Data and research go hand-in-hand. As well as providing schools with the latest attendance reporting tools, we think it’s equally as important to share our research about attendance patterns in schools.
