Non-attendance is subject to a departmental policy which states:
The Principal is responsible for the accurate recording and rigorous monitoring of the attendance of all students and for implementing appropriate strategies to restore attendance if there are attendance issues.

This policy requires schools to follow procedures related to recording attendance, monitoring attendance, referrals to School Attendance Officer, Children Whose Whereabouts are Unknown, referrals to School Attendance Panel and data collections.


Care must be exercised when interpreting the data as it may refer to small student numbers and therefore the attendance rates may be volatile

Cells in the table containing N/A refer to schools or year levels with less than 10 students enrolled
