Improving attendance in Scotland: Actions for consideration

  1. Local authorities should carefully monitor their strategic and implementation plans for improving attendance or develop a plan where one is not in place.
  2. Put children and young people’s views at the centre of refreshed approaches.
  3. Education Scotland working with stakeholders and partners should provide bespoke support for areas where improving levels of attendance remains a challenge.
  4. Approaches to effective tracking and monitoring attendance should be collated and shared.
  5. Education Scotland and Scottish Government should collaborate with the wider system to bring coherence to the work on improving attendance.
