Primary:

The primary absenteeism information in this table relates largely to pupils of compulsory school age (ages 5 to 10 at the beginning of the academic year) at schools that responded to the survey. However, absenteeism information for a small number of schools may include all pupils regardless of age (e.g. including reception classes).

Primary absenteeism data for special and independent schools have not been included in the LEA figures, but have been included, where provided, in the Wales figures.

Secondary:

The secondary absenteeism information in this table relates to secondary school pupils of compulsory school age (11 to 15) registered at mainstream, special and independent schools.

Secondary absenteeism data for independent schools have not been included in the LEA figures, but have been included, where provided, in the Wales figures.
