Attendance and absences
Students must attend school regularly so they can achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options.
In NSW, all children from the age of 6 are legally required to attend school or be registered for home schooling. All students must complete Year 10, or its equivalent and remain in school, employment or training until they turn 17.
So much happens within a school day and everyday matters for students to continuously make progress with their learning and keep momentum across all Key Learning Areas.
