Improving school attendance and reducing truancy

Newly updated as of November 2022

How to reduce truancy at schools

This topic comes up on the News every six months – how truancy is on the increase and kids are not attending school and how to reduce truancy at schools.

In this kit, we will discuss the reasons and the impact of truancy and address the truancy problem with updated strategies and resources.

This kit addresses many facets of non-attendance and provides you with a refreshing view of how to tackle truancy and reduce it over one term! The 44-page eBook manual and resources in this pack help schools coordinate with their community to ensure kids get to school and show you how to reduce truancy at your schools. It also addresses ways to make school more interesting and how to overcome some of the other reasons for non-attendance.

From the Ministry: “Under sections 36, 48, 49 and 242 of the Education and Training Act 2020, every school board must take all reasonable steps to make sure students attend school when it’s open.” Similar laws are in place in most countries and this guide will help your school to uphold school attendance laws.

Download and use this kit today to help your school reduce truancy, increase students’ desire to attend and also set up a truant-free zone in your community.
