Students are more likely to attend and achieve at school if they feel accepted, valued, respected and included. Research suggests that staff morale also has a significant impact on student attendance.

Schools should promote positive relationships between and amongst students, staff, and parents. Anti-bullying strategies and programs that develop social and emotional skills can help nurture a safe, caring and connected school environment.

Positive relationships with parents can also assist in supporting their children's attendance at school.

Attendance reward schemes are amongst a mix of strategies implemented by many schools that have achieved significant improvements in attendance. These programs can help in building a sense of community and creating a positive school environment that students want to be a part of.
