DfE Guidance on temporary changes: attendance recording for educational settings whilst closed due to the coronavirus
We have put together key information and resources for schools to help maintain provision during the COVID-19 situation.
Monitoring persistent absence
To help monitor levels of persistent absence, all primary and secondary schools in East Sussex need to submit data on pupils who are often absent from school. This data should be submitted at the end of terms 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Your school needs to submit the following data:
- Number and names of pupils who are at risk of becoming persistent absentees (those with absences exceeding the thresholds for each period)
- Number and names of pupils who are already persistent absentees (those who at the time of reporting have an attendance of below 90%)
How to submit pupil data
Information is sent to all schools annually on how to report pupil data, which must be done via secure email. If you have any queries, please contact the Education Support Behaviour and Attendance Service.
