Orange High School

Attendance Policy


All students who are enrolled at school, regardless of their age, are expected to attend school. Full regular attendance is a critical factor in ensuring positive, educational outcomes for students, supporting them in achieving their potential, and increasing career and life options.

Schools, in partnership with parents and carers, are responsible for promoting the regular attendance of students. Section 22 of the Education Act (1990) outlines the legal requirements for compulsory schooling.

This policy reflects the DET School Attendance Policy and the School Attendance Procedures as they apply to Orange High School.
