In the tables on attendance and absence (TESS, December 12), unfortunately the figure for authorised absence for our school was incorrect and has since been amended by the Audit Unit. However, this was too late to provide an erratum to their document which had already gone to print. The correct figure was 8.4 per cent and not 13.5 per cent.
