FFT National Attendance Awards

We know just how difficult it can be for schools to maintain, improve and promote good pupil attendance. That’s why, each term, we present some of the very best schools with an FFT National Attendance Award.

The awards are a ‘thank you’ to schools and celebrate the hard work and dedication of all those involved — pupils, parents, carers, staff and others — in achieving excellent attendance during the term.

Has your school won an award?

Awards are presented to Aspire schools in the top 10% and top 25% for pupil attendance, nationally and among similar schools.

To check if your school has won an award this term, simply sign in to Aspire and look out for a notification on the homepage.
