Attendance

PublishingPageContent

All children should be enrolled at school and should attend every school day.

It is a parent's responsibility to ensure that their child attends school on every school day for the educational program in which he/she is enrolled.

A parent of a young person in the compulsory participation phase is obliged to ensure their child is participating full-time in an approved education or training option.

The duration and location of a student's educational program is determined by the school and may include sites other than the school site, for example, sporting grounds, museums or TAFE.

Any time a student is not attending or participating in their educational program it is considered an absence and must be explained.

Every day counts is a statewide initiative addressing the problem of student absences.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and student attendance

Parents may elect to keep their children home during this time as part of the community response to COVID-19 and should notify their child’s school of this decision.

It is entirely reasonable for parents to be taking this action and absences will be recorded accordingly.

For information about novel coronavirus (COVID-19), go to the Queensland Health website.
