Whole School Attendance

Our attendance is beginning to show some improvement and we are really pleased that we achieved our target in July 2017:

Attendance in school for previous academic year 2016/17

Period of return: % of attendance:

Sept 16 – July 17   96.2%

Faringdon Junior School needs to consistently meet the target of 96% which is the national average. We can only do this if parents support us fully and if we all understand the importance of NOT taking term time holidays or absences from school.

Thank you to those parents who are helping FJS raise our attendance levels, which helps our children to get the most out of their educational experience.
