Student Attendance Policy

High attendance is a major predictor for academic success. At Fawkner Primary School, we strive to ensure that students have the best opportunities to learn.

Our student attendance policy aims:

  • To address student absenteeism to state means or below.
  • To accurately account for all student absences.
  • To provide information/education for parents and students on the importance of education and full school attendance.
  • To develop strategies for the identification of and early intervention for students who are at risk of developing poor attendance patterns.
  • To provide support and strategies for parents, students and teachers to improve student attendance.
  • To inform families about the changes to Education, Training and Reform Act of 2006 regarding compulsory school enrolment attendance.
