School Census Bulletin – Summer 2017 (4)
The Department for Education have updated their guidance regarding the recording of absence for year 11 leavers.
NOTE: The official school leaving date is the last Friday in June in the school year in which a child reaches age 16. This means that year 11 pupils must remain on the school roll until Friday 30 June 2017 and their attendance and absence must be recorded to this date (not Friday 23 June 2017 as previously stated).
"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
