Well, you miss out one of the most important features for this task which is the Overview in that you tell the reader about main observations or trends. Note that this overview should not contain any details. This is how the structure goes;

1. Introduction
2. Overview
3. Details (you can have about two paras for this section while others can be even just one sentence)

Actually I write the overview as a conclusion.. because when you write overview you don't need to write conclusion, vice versa.

Yep, I get your point. Some say that It does not matter to have your overview in the conclusion or the introduction provided that you write an overview in one of these places. But, in my personal view, it is much more presentable if you stick to the structure of Introduction, Overview and Details. I believe that a conclusion for this task is not really necessary because this task does not expect you to write any analysis or opinion. Conclusion is a must for the Task 2.

I would have written:
The pie chart given elucidates information on reasons why British pupils are absent at school in year 2007. Moreover, there is seven expressed reasons for this case, namely: working parents...

IMPORTANT:
1.Don't use % a lot. Try to use about a third (30%), exact one fourth (25%), one out of ten student (10%), an insignificant proportion (5%) and ...

2. Show your examiner that you can entertain your readers by using a variation of words. for example: instead of repeating UK, yo can use Britain, England,United Kingdom, British students & ...

3.A very personal experience: some words and topics iterate over and over in IELTS writing. Such as: students, tutor, home, resident, region, transportation, woods, governments, vehicles, guns, criminal, sports, food, obesity, university and so much more... . My dear friend, if you really want to write an effective essay LEARN AT LEAST THREE SYNONYM for these extremely common words. Thus avoid repeat words.

4.Here are some useful videos that I've used. I strongly recommend you to watch theme
youtube ==> AcademicEnglishHelp ( for general information and beginners)
dcielts. c o m(useful for upgrading your level)
youtube ==> EnglishRyan ( good tips)
youtube ==> EducationWisdom ( most useful for high score)

5.Keep calm and keep going, practice makes perfect ;)

P.S: for numbers under 10, always write words instead of numbers.
