Enrolment and attendance statistics

Enrolment and attendance snapshots are collected eight times per year (at the beginning and end of each term). There are two snapshots per school term. The first snapshot period covers weeks 1 to 4 in the school term, and the second snapshot covers weeks 5 to 8. Enrolment number is the average enrolments of students over the 4 week period. Attendance rate is the proportion of time students attend compared to the time they are expected to attend during the 4 week period.

New enrolment and attendance processes have been introduced from Term 1 2013 that provides a richer, more robust and highly validated data set. Due to these enhancements, 2013 represents a break in series and enrolment and attendance data cannot be compared to previous years.

In addition, an important part of Every Child Every Day is the capturing and reporting of high quality enrolment and attendance information, including reporting on reasons for non-attendance.
