Looking at the staff template, we can see this school have 183 current staff members.
Step 2 - View staff absence stats
Then you can use the staff absence statistics page to work out how many of those staff members had absences.
To get to staff absences, go to Staff > All Staff > Absences > Statistics (left side).
Make sure to check you have the correct date ranges, by clicking change to take you into the page filters. From looking at this page, we can see there were 8 staff that had absences.
Step 3 - Calculate the figure
So to calculate the total percentage of staff who had absences is as follows:
183 (total current staff) divided by 8 (total staff with absences) multiplied by 100 = 2% of staff had absences this academic year.
