Student Attendance

Policy Statement

Mother Teresa is committed to student attendance being a priority in schools through consistent practices of roll-marking, monitoring and proactive follow-up of student non-attendance. We will communicate high expectations of attendance to students, families and carers, and celebrate high attendance.


Student attendance is achieved at Mother Teresa Primary School by following these principles:

  • Attendance is everyone’s responsibility.
  • Engaging with the school community and families and carers on the importance of attendance.
  • Celebrating and acknowledging high attendance i.e. above 95%.
  • Supporting and re-engaging students with attendance below 90%.
  • Regularly tracking and monitoring student attendance data, following up on all on unexplained absences.
