Maintaining High Attendance

Premium Add-on

Maintaining high attendance is fundamental to delivering a high quality education — and, ultimately, to children achieving the best results they can.

Studybugs helps maintain high attendance by improving children’s health. Our optional Attendance add-on takes things further, freeing up hours every day of staff time, and providing live information and tools to enable staff to be as effective as possible in tackling the underlying causes of pupil absence.

Schools using Studybugs Attendance have seen their attendance increase by 0.5%*.

Studybugs [Attendance] cuts our admin burden by at least a couple of hours each day, leaving the attendance team more time to apply the personal touch where it’s really needed. Suzanne Lewis, Head of Pastoral Care, Dorothy Stringer School

I think it’s a fantastic system for any school. The evidence is showing schools using Studybugs are able to increase their engagement with parents whilst streamlining admin. This is helping staff to focus attention where it’s really needed — to improve the attendance of all pupils. Mark Vickers, Ofsted Inspector and CEO of Olive Academies
