Important information from the DfE regarding the sharing of attendance data
The changes in attendance guidance that are to be implemented from September 2022 will be supported by a change in the way that data is shared with the Department for Education (DfE). Please ensure this information is passed on to your senior leadership member with responsibility for attendance to action.
Thank you to the 180 schools in Gloucestershire who have already signed up; we are appealing to all schools to please sign up to the trial as this will become compulsory following future legislation and will replace the current census information shared with the DfE. Your participation will enable us all to give qualitive feedback to the DfE to inform the system moving forward.
Instructions on how to sign up are contained at Share your daily school attendance data - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
