PC Clock requires no separate time and attendance network
Record numbers of primary school children skipped lessons without permission last year. The Department for Education has revealed that the number of primary age youngsters skipping class continues to rise. The figures show that primary pupils skipped 0.68 per cent of half days, up from 0.65% for the same terms in 2008/09, and 0.52% three years ago in 2006/07. The statistics suggest that 22,700 primary pupils missed class on a typical school day in 2009/10 through truancy, family holidays, illness and other reasons.
Tensor makes life easier for parents, teachers and pupils in attaining better attendance records at school through its Time and Attendance technology. Tensor’s smart cards and software provides the fastest and safest method of recording attendance, while features like Fire Roll Call can be integrated into the attendance monitoring system to ensure the little ones are safe in an emergency. We even have a basic but tried-and-tested attendance system that requires no separate time and attendance network – pupils simply log on via a computer.
