End of the Early Years Attendance Register?

Thank you for your continued support with completing the Attendance Register, it is very much appreciated.

The Department for Education (DFE) have consulted on ending the collection of attendance data from Local Authorities. They have contact us to say that no returns will be made after the end of July unless there is a significant change to the national guidance affecting attendance at early years settings. The Attendance Survey being sent to you on Thursday 15th July 2021 (for return by Wednesday 21st July 2021) may therefore be the last one.

We will update you as we receive further information from the DFE.

The Frequently Asked Questions relating to the Attendance Register have been refreshed on the Early Years and Childcare COVID-19 Webpage. We hope that you find these helpful.
