2015

We are only able to extract attendance figures for specific dates for the current school year. In accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act we can therefore confirm that this information is not held.

2016

March 25th was Good Friday and all our schools were on holiday so we have provided figures for 23rd March. 

March 23 - Primary schools' absences can be viewed here, and secondary schools' here.

March 24 - Primary schools' absences can be viewed here, and secondary schools' here.
