The Welsh Government says attendance levels for primary school pupils are at their highest since records began.
The latest figures also show the percentage of pupils who are persistently off school is lower than it has been for seven years.
There are calls for a new approach to teaching digital literacy to stop welsh children falling behind.
That's according to a report by Wise Kids which found less that half of pupils thought their school's technology was sufficient.
It surveyed over 2000 Year 9 pupils (aged 13 and 14) across Wales looking at their online and digital media habits and says it reveals a disconnect between children's digital experiences at home and in school.
Wise Kids says there needs to be high quality technology and internet access in all schools and improved digital literacy training for teachers.
Professor Graham Donaldson is currently undertaking a wide-ranging independent review of curriculum and assessment arrangements, including digital literacy. He is due to report back early in the new year.
As part of his review, Professor Donaldson will be considering the recommendations made by the independent ICT Steering Group on the future of computer science and ICT in schools in Wales - including the group's recommendations in relation to digital literacy.
In the meantime our Learning in Digital Wales Grant has enabled almost every school in Wales to benefit from improvements in enhanced internet connectivity or in-school Wi-Fi provision. This is opening up real opportunities to deliver 21st Century teaching and learning in today's digital society.
We are addressing many of the issues raised by this report and we will look carefully at the information to identify any further potential improvements in our provision.

Glyndwr University has welcomed the Home Office's decision to allow it to recruit overseas students again, which it says means the institution has "a very positive future."
More than 2,000 of the university's 8,000 students are from outside the EU.
Glyndwr had its licence suspended after an investigation into alleged visa fraud, with concerns about how students obtained English language certificates.
University bosses say it will relinquish the lease on its London campus at Elephant and Castle in December, and move to new premises by July 2015.
It will only recruit students to its Wrexham campus initially, and plans to "develop security controls" before applying to recruit to London-based courses again in the future.
The University is fully committed to continuing its support for a more robust student visa system and in that regard is undertaking a number of changes to its London campus during the coming months, including a locational move.
The University will continue to work closely with the UKVI, which shared its concerns for students legitimately studying at Glyndwr University, in accordance with legal regulations.
The students are the University’s primary concern, and the majority are hard-working and dedicated. They have not infringed immigration or University rules and regulations and should not suffer because of the misdeeds of a few.
The lifting of the suspension and the new structure we have put in place this year point to a very positive future for Glyndwr University.
A suspension has been lifted, with conditions, on the recruitment of overseas students by Glyndwr University, following a scandal over English language tests.
UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) suspended the university's 'highly trusted' status - which enables it to sponsor the visas of non-European Union students - in June.
The decision by the Home Office now allows the University to resume the sponsorship of international students at its Wrexham campus, but not in London.
There are concerns about the future of Glyndwr University - and hundreds of jobs - if a home office ruling goes against it today.
The University is due to find out whether the home office will lift a suspension on its ability to recruit non-EU students, following a scandal over fake visas.
In June UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) suspended the university's "highly trusted" status which enables it to sponsor the visas of non-European Union students.
Money provided by non EU students in 2012/13 was worth about £9.5m of the university's estimated £43m income, and the university is believed to be running with a £1.4m deficit since August.
Education Minister Huw Lewis and teaching unions have traded blows over a report from Estyn into struggling numeracy standards in schools.Read the full story ›
The NAHT Cymru union has responded to concerns from education watchdog Estyn over the maths skills of Welsh pupils.
Acting director Dr Christopher Howard accuses the Welsh Government of trying to "shift the blame" for poor performance onto schools.
Welsh Government has known that mathematical skills were comparatively poor for many years. It is pretty rich for Mr Lewis to demand urgency now from schools when the government dilly dallied for years.
The Welsh Government has paid little or no regard to the need to recruit high quality graduates or the need to include a stronger focus on mathematics in initial teacher training for primary trainees.
NUT Cymru says schools "have been inundated with policy changes by the Welsh Government" in recent years.
You cannot expect new initiatives to be introduced effectively unless there is high quality and properly resourced training and professional development to accompany it.
That is something the Welsh Government, local authorities and regional consortia will no doubt wish to reflect upon.
