School attendance

Regularly attending school really matters when it comes to your child’s learning and their future. We are here to help and will be happy to talk about any challenges you have in ensuring your children are back at school.


We will be sending student attendance data to the Ministry weekly, from 29 May.


The purpose is to:

  • report to the National Crisis Monitoring Centre and government on levels of attendance during the COVID-19 period

  • inform and support Ministry planning for students and schools returning to normal operation, and

  • evaluate and report on the effectiveness of initiatives implemented by the Ministry to respond and manage its response to COVID-19.
