  27. 27. We have been using PARS for two years. We now have a much better picture on attendance. We know who is in, and the accuracy is dependent upon the user and not the software. We didn't have lesson registers until PARS, now we can quickly see who has disappeared. Our Attendance Officers use it all the time and attendance is now better than it was before. We also use the messaging and notices facilities on PARS and find its communications features very helpful – Steven Cleaver, ICT Manager, St. Peter’s RC School PARS started to prove an essential tool and was expanded to all lessons. It informed staff if a student had been missing from even one lesson. This proved essential in a battle for attendance. Our attendance to lessons improved significantly. Lateness to lessons was reduced – Steve Wilkinson, Assistant Headteacher, Wolstanton High School
