How attendance informs
There is a misconception that the principal reason to show parents records of their child’s attendance is to catch out those children who choose to miss lessons.
You will certainly be able to spot if your son or daughter deliberately misses school but most students attend school regularly and you will know already about their absences.
Displaying attendance to parents gives many positive outcomes. The Xpressions app attendance screens will send you a clear and assured message that your child is at school and learning.
If however, a student is absent through illness you will be able to view your child’s timetable to see what he/she has missed. You can offer your help and support to find what needs to be done to catch up.
You can also see patterns where specific lessons may be missed, such as PE, which your child may not enjoy. This allows you to support them and spot signs of possible bullying.
