Enrolment and attendance statistics
Enrolment and attendance data is collected eight times per year (at the beginning and end of each of the four terms). Enrolment is the number of students enrolled on the collection day. Attendance rate is the proportion of time students attend compared to the time they are expected to attend during the collection period.
The data presented on this website allows for longitudinal analysis from 2003 to current. This data enables DET to monitor progress and determine the effectiveness of whole of department strategies.
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. An internal data system has been developed to facilitate this and enable DET to tailor strategies appropriate to each school.
The data is grouped by geolocation as follows:
- Provincial – Darwin and Palmerston schools
- Remote – Alice Springs and Katherine Schools
- Very Remote – All other NT schools
Attendance rates at very remote schools tend to vary by up to 12.0% within a school year. Generally, attendance rates are lower during the dry season (higher mobility) and higher during the wet season.
