Education attendance policy Every Day Counts.
ATTENDANCE - EVERY DAY COUNTS
Tips for turning up
Don’t think about it
Just do it, go to school. Sounds simple, because it is. School attendance
should become a habit.
Get to bed early
Yeah, we know it sounds preachy, but it’s important. Go to bed late on
weekends, that’s what they're for. During the week, though, be sensible: hit the
hay early. It’s a sure way to make the most of your school day.
What’s this about? It’s thinking possibilities, more importantly your
career and work possibilities. Whatever your dream is, school is important in
making sure you achieve it.
Check in with your friends to make sure they’re turning up, and hopefully
they’ll do the same for you.
In addition to this framework, the Loganlea SHS attendance policy aims
· Develop and reinforce the importance of
the connection between school, student,home and the wider school community to
positively impact on student attendance, engagement and academic
· Develop relationships between teachers
(Care Group teacher or other) and students so that students feel safe to attend
school and voice their needs - academic, social or emotional.
· Provides a platform for students to
develop resilience and self-motivation.

Make school attendance a habit
Tips for school attendance
A set routine can help students get to school every day.
Help them develop good habits by ensuring they:
· have set hours during the week for
going to bed and waking up each day
· remind them to organise their uniform
and school bag the night before
· regularly eat breakfast at the same
time each day
· set a time for daily homework and
What can parents and guardians
do? Support students in developing good school habits, and speak positively
about school. And make sure they turn up every day — including their birthday
and last day of term.
