This has really worsened the performance in C.C.P.E. The researcher therefore ventured to find out the impacts of absenteeism on the performance of mathematics of the learners. after the report, the necessary recommendations will be made to the Government of Kenya, the ministry of Education, the Teachers Service Commission and the Education Management committees to device new methods and approaches to curb the problem of absenteeism m schools in order to achieve the educational goals and objectives. the study was carried out in a public Primary School in Gucha-South District-Kenya.
