Truancy Services

This is a Ministry of Education initiative. The purpose of this service is to:

  • Successfully engage tamariki/tauira in the educations system;
  • Reduce the number of unjustified absences;
  • Ensure that the Integrated Attendance Service functions systematically, efficiently, to its full capacity and effectively. All services will be monitored and assessed in a timely manner to ensure that accountability is regularly maintained.

The main objective of the Integrated Attendance Service is to re-integrate truant students into the education system. We expect that a robust system will support our efforts to re-engage truant students. We will support Aotearoa/New Zealand to create:

“A world leading education system that equips all New Zealanders with the knowledge, skills and values to be successful citizens in the 21st century” Ministry of Education

This service extends beyond returning the learner back to school. It looks at all factors contributing to a learner’s unjustifiable absence or non-enrolment and identifies what school, whānau, community and social service support is required to sustain attendance.
