Coronavirus and attendance

Coronavirus and attendance

From today, educational settings will need to temporarily change their attendance recording practices. To minimise the burden on educational settings and ensure that only the most important information is submitted. 

Settings must: 

      1. Stop taking their normal attendance registers 
      2. Complete this spreadsheet to record attendance for all children at the educational setting. 
      3. Use the information in the spreadsheet to complete this short form notifying the Department for Education about your status regarding COVID-19. The form should be submitted by midday each weekday. 

Vulnerable children and young people 

It is expected that schools and local authorities should work together, taking into consideration the cohort and different circumstances.
