TEN reports, ONE system
Attendance Tracker is TEN 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.
How it works
New for Autumn 2021
This Autumn, we've added a range of new features and data to make Attendance Tracker even better. Look out for more exciting new reports later this term including summary dashboards and geographical mapping.
Fully interactive charts with 'like-for-like' national comparisons
Revised Covid Impact report – measure the impact of Covid-19 on attendance at your school compared to national patterns
New deep-dive facility for identifying and targeting persistent absence using 'Attendance bands'
Improved range of export options including PDF and Excel – great for meetings or local analysis of data
Fully reflective of the DFE’s new attendance codes
The week’s attendance headlines...
Attendance Tracker’s Dashboard and Summary reports provide you with the week’s headlines. Key attendance and absence indicators, weekly changes, live national comparisons and a yearly tracker. All colour coded and clearly laid out.
Detailed attendance analysis
We know that attendance varies across year groups. Track and compare your own year groups internally, then compare to 1000’s of other FFT schools nationally.
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.
The geography of attendance
Analyse your attendance geographically using two new FFT reports – Attendance Maps and Absence Hotspots. Highlight and identify areas of high and low level absence in your catchment area - then use our time series animation tool to see how attendance changes over the course of the academic year.
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.
