Every Day Counts – Northern Territory School Attendance Strategy 2016-2018

The Northern Territory Government School Attendance Strategy 2016–2018 PDF (605.9 KB), Every Day Counts, provides a coordinated whole-of-government approach for improving school attendance and the learning, wellbeing and engagement of young Territorians.

Every Day Counts focuses on three key priorities to achieve significant and sustained improvement in school attendance and engagement:

  • safe and healthy communities
  • strong families
  • quality early childhood services and schools.

The strategy will support young people to engage in schooling by strengthening partnerships with families, communities, schools and government agencies; providing services that reduce the barriers to attendance to support the establishment of strong patterns of attendance.

It will focus efforts on early intervention when a child’s attendance is first identified as an issue, and preventing the child’s prolonged disengagement from education to ensure students stay engaged in their education.
