Tupu Ake - Integrated Attendance Service

Attendance Service Providers are contracted by the Ministry of Education to support schools in the management of persistent unjustified absence (after the school has made all reasonable attempts to engage the student and whanau). 

Whilst our first priority is to ensure the student is re-engaged in a registered learning environment, this service extends beyond returning a student back to school. It looks at all factors contributing to a learner’s unjustifiable absence and seeks to identify what school, family/whānau, community and social service support is required to sustain attendance.
