School Registers

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.

Absence codes

All schools must use fixed national absence codes to record pupil absence. The codes help to monitor the reasons why children are absent from school and levels of unauthorised absence. If you would like more information about using the codes or you have any other enquiries about pupil absence, please contact the Education Support, Behaviour and Attendance Service.

School register audits

The Education Support, Behaviour and Attendance Service can carry out audits of maintained school registers where there are concerns around accurate coding.Schools will be inspected using an audit tool developed by Education Support, Behaviour and Attendance Service and the Department for Education. For more information download the audit tool

If you would like more information about using the absence codes or the annual audit inspections please contact the Education Support, Behaviour and Attendance Service.
