An annual report showing data on authorised and unauthorised absenteeism by pupils of compulsory school age, including information on school type, gender, free school meal eligibility and length of absence.

- In general, overall absence has been falling since 2005/06. In 2013/14, overall absenteeism continued to fall, dropping by 1.0 percentage points since the previous year.

- The percentage of persistent absentees in maintained secondary schools has decreased every year since 2007/08. It is now half what it was six years ago, showing a drop of 5.0 percentage points from 10.0 per cent in 2007/08 to 5.0 per cent in 2013/14.
