Enrolment and attendance

Enrolment and attendance data is collected eight times per year (at the beginning and end of each term). In each term the first reporting period covers weeks one to four, and the second reporting period covers weeks five to eight. The average enrolment number is the average enrolments of students over the four week reporting period. The attendance rate is the proportion of time students attend compared to the time they are expected to attend during the four week period.

New enrolment and attendance processes were introduced in 2013 that provided a richer, more robust and highly validated dataset. Due to these enhancements, 2013 represents a break in series and therefore enrolment and attendance data prior to 2013 cannot be compared to 2013 or onwards datasets.

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