Burnside Business and Enterprise College recognises the link between high levels of attendance and individual pupil achievement. We acknowledge that regular attendance at school is fundamental in equipping young people with the necessary social and academic skills to enable them to go on to become valuable members of society. Research shows us that those students who fail to engage in education have more limited opportunities and are at a higher risk of being involved in anti-social behaviour and an early introduction to the criminal justice system.
