Attendance and Punctuality

When a pupil attends school on a regular basis, they take an important step towards reaching their full potential, and are given the greatest opportunity to learn new things and develop their skills. Pupils who miss school frequently can fall behind with their work and do less well in exams.

School support can make a difference, although there is no single, prescriptive way to reduce absenteeism.

There are six broad strategies schools can promote:

  • Development of policy into effective practice¬†
  • Promotion of a positive school environment
  • Provision of clear and high attendance expectations
  • Establishment of efficient and effective day-to-day management of attendance issues
  • Effective communication and collaboration with parents and the community
  • Targeting additional support for attendance issues on priority areas of need.
