Any organisation struggles operationally to accomodate absence and of course lost work days cost money. Within educational institutions absence will often have a significant impact on students and of course colleagues. Disruption of lesson preparation and delivery, setting and marking of work can result in affecting the performance and results of indivdiual pupils and ultimately of the school. The costs of supply teachers and the general disruption created operationally can cause managerial and colleague frustration and increased overall workload for everyone. The 'knock on' effect can sometimes manifest in additonal pressures and stress.
