SICKNESS absence rates
are on the rise among hospital staff across Coventry and Warwickshire.

Here we conduct a review of frontal sinus absence rates
with several aims: (1) locate and document already-existing data on frontal sinus absence rates
for various population groups; (2) consolidate frontal sinus absence rates
for similar population groups; and (3) make this existing and new data on frontal sinus absence rates
available to practitioners through a publicly available repository.
The in-depth guide takes into account no fewer than 44 different data points - including not just KS2 results but factors like progress, pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates

High absence rates
have negative consequences not only for individual students, but also for classroom instruction and school climate.
