Our kids had attendance reports at the end of each term. Number of term days :xxx. Number of days present : xxx. Number of days absent : xxx. Do yours have a similar report? This can be important in primary school year 6 if there is a lot of competition for your chosen secondary school and the school's decision on who to take comes down to the attendance record. Not sure if it works this way in schools round yours, but it could be a factor. Just something else to throw into the mix.
