Attendance

In New Zealand, students between the ages of 6 and 16 must be enrolled in a school and must attend school. For our students, attendance means your student sends in assessable work regularly.
 
If your student does not send in work for an extended period of time, he or she is truanting, and cannot remain on our roll. If they are under 16 years old, we must notify the Ministry of Education’s Non-Enrolled Truancy Service (NETS).

It’s important that you encourage your student to send in assessable work at least every two weeks. If your student is not returning work, we may not be the best option for them. 

We will send you a letter if your student has not sent any work for a month or more. He or she will be taken off our roll if no assessable work is received by the end of the following month. 

This process does not apply to students living overseas.

If special circumstances have prevented your student from returning work, such as illness, contact your student’s learning advisor to discuss the situation.
