Luck I reckon. I do remember being very pleased with myself as a child when I had a 100% record though.

why would it show a lack of imagination

plantsitter Mon 21-Jul-08 16:06:54

Might just mean someone is super efficient at skiving off undetected (or twagging as we used to call it)

What a fantastically silly excuse to make fun of someone.

It's luck, of course. And if they ever had to go to the dentist, it's well done the parents for booking the appointments enough in advance that it could be at the weekend.

Leave them alone.

Luck and/or parents who send you even when you're unwell.

I hate all the emphasis on 100% attendance, but we do have major problems round here so the schools have to do it.

A lad left our school last year having had 100% attendance for 12 years! shock shock shock

Just ticking boxes for school inspections and reports. Bollocks. What a shit reward to get. DS got one presented in assembly once. Oh dear. I felt we were on the dull side - not proud.

(Then tomorrow is non-competitive sports day. Fucked up IMO)

I'm proud that ds has near enough 100% attendance each year - this year he had 1 day off for travelling back from a family party and a half days absence for a hospital appointment - we aren't dull - ds is lucky to be super healthy and I arrange appointments usually for after school.

iCodandnotDumb Mon 21-Jul-08 16:35:51

yes not always easy though if you have a major eye op

roisin Mon 21-Jul-08 16:39:09

Ds1 was cheesed off because the day he went for exams/selection at independent school counted as 'absence' where as the day he had visiting his state school didn't count as 'absence'. (Counted as educated off-site or some such nonsense!)

ds2 was thrilled with 100% this year (first ever): won't happen next year. We're waiting for a date for an op which will mean 2 weeks off, possibly right at the start of term. Round here EWO come over if you have more than a week off in the first half term, even if they know why you're not in grin

I got a certificate for 100% attendance at work recently hmm

Am already (theoretically) planning my sick leave, so that I don't have to suffer the same ignominy next year...

iCodandnotDumb Mon 21-Jul-08 16:42:16

shock rosisin are you sellgin out?! wink

roisin Mon 21-Jul-08 16:43:22

by "selling out" do you mean going to independent or not going to independent?

iCodandnotDumb Mon 21-Jul-08 16:45:02

going to......


roisin Mon 21-Jul-08 16:49:26

Ha! He's not going to actually, but only by sheer luck.

Some of us don't have the luxury of fabby local grammar schools. Schools in town are grim, grim and grimmer. Over half in special measures, most destined for closure in 12 months to be replaced by Academy to be built in next 4-5 years hmm

But by some astonishing stroke of fortune he got a place in the school in the next town, so he's going there smile

iCodandnotDumb Mon 21-Jul-08 17:12:45

grin the grammar hting is good if oyu are in of course
if oyu dont its shit
