At St Brigid’s, we know that attendance and student outcomes correlate. As such, the school is committed to managing absenteeism by implementing strategies to monitor and improve student attendance rates.
Learning Every Day Counts is a diocesan initiative that aims to assist in improving student attendance at school through a shared commitment by students, families, schools and the community.
The Learning Every Day Counts initiative promotes four key messages:
- All children of compulsory school age (up to 17 years) should be enrolled at school and attend every school day
- The school promotes, monitors, communicates and implements strategies to improve and maintain regular school attendance
- Missing days of school impacts on a students’ learning, wellbeing and future employment and life choices
- Supporting good attendance at school is the responsibility of everyone in the school community.
