Ofsted Outstanding


Last academic year (2015-16) overall pupil attendance at Babington was 95.08% - this was a big improvement on previous years.  This year we need to raise our attendance to 96% which is the college target for 2016-17. We have set all our students a personal target of 96% as we feel this level of attendance will ensure success in lessons.


Research has shown that there is a strong link between good attendance and attainment. At Babington:

  • 58% of last year’s Y11 with 96% or more attendance achieved 5 GCSEs with English and Maths
  • 90% of last year’s Y11 with 96% or more attendance achieved 3 or more levels progress in English
  • 73% of last year’s Y11 with 96% or more attendance achieved 3 or more levels progress in Maths

If your child has good attendance, they will:

  • do better in lessons
  • find it easier to make progress
  • receive rewards for good attendance
  • feel happier about school


If your child is absent regularly they may:

  • find work harder
  • not feel part of the class 
  • find it hard to make friends
  • not make the most of the opportunities provided by the college
