Rossendale takes school attendance very seriously and is always striving to ensure our pupils achieve as close to 100% attendance (which many do) as is possible. Attendance figures for Rossendale School during the 2014/15 academic year were:
- Actual Attendance - 93.52%
- Authorised Absence - 4.32%
- Unauthorised Absence - 2.16%
Whilst our attendance is below the national average for mainstream school it is nevertheless above the national average for special schools. It also represents a significant increase in our pupils’ attendance to the historical situation which, in many cases, involved the young person not attending school at all.
