  • Absence and attendance codes What codes should we use to record attendance and absence? We set out the absence and attendance codes from the DfE's attendance guidance in table format, alongside the definition and scenario to which each code refers. You can also download the tables as a printable KeyDoc.
  • Attendance: closing registers It's up to you when to close your registers. See the official guidance on this, and what approaches schools have taken.
