Schools are expected to provide safe, secure, supportive and engaging learning environments so that student participation can be maximised.

Schools (government and selective entry) undertake a range of activities to support student participation including:

  • developing student engagement policies
  • managing student intake processes such as:
    • admission
    • enrolment
    • student placement 
    • transfer arrangements.
  • managing student attendance requirements and supporting school attendance exemption processes
  • planning adjustments to support students with additional learning needs or a disability
  • supporting student transition from:
    • primary school to secondary school 
    • secondary school to employment or further education and training.
