The Department has published a series of case studies which have been carried out in order to look at improving attendance within the Primary and Post-Primary sectors.
Schools involved were facing a range of different challenges all of which were impacting upon pupil attendance.
As a consequence of the work to date, ten schools have provided details of the range of interventions that they have introduced and what lessons they have learned from these initiatives.
We hope that these case studies will be useful to other schools facing similar challenges. We intend to continue to work with schools on this important issue.
