Final 2018 data is not available or applicable for this school. This is normally for one of the following reasons:

  • The school changed school type (for example, converted to an academy) during the 2017 to 2018 academic year, or re-opened after the closure of the previous school on the same site (for example, it became a sponsored academy). In these cases, the 2018 data will be found on the page of the former school, because that is where pupils carried out the majority of key stage 2 opens a popup .
  • The school had no pupils at the end of key stage 2 in 2018 - for example, because the school is new and pupils have so far only completed the first few years of their studies.
  • We don't publish key stage 2 figures for independent schools.

You should be cautious comparing absence figures over time, as full academic year absence figures are only available for 2013 to 2014 onwards. In previous years absence data was based on the autumn and spring terms only.
