Student attendance has been demonstrated to be linked to student academic outcomes, although the nature of the link is complex. CESE’s Government School Student Attendance 2016 bulletin summarises attendance rates by:

  • student level of education
  • remoteness
  • Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students
  • school term
  • selective school status and FOEI.

CESE’s analysis of Semester 1 2016 attendance data indicates that the average attendance rate for NSW government schools was 92.2 per cent.
