Table 4.2 shows the 2012/13 national attendance rate across each sector broken down by gender, ethnicity, additional support needs and the Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD, 20% most deprivation (MD) versus 20% least deprivation (LD)).

Pupils with additional support needs in mainstream schools again had a lower attendance rate than pupils with no additional support needs, with the difference again being greater in secondary school.

Pupils living in areas with higher levels of deprivation had lower attendance rates, with the effect being greater in secondary and special school. In secondary schools, pupils living in areas associated with most deprivation (based on lowest 20 per cent of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2012 (SIMD)) had an attendance rate 5.6 percentage points lower than the pupils living in areas associated with least deprivation.
