To help you complete the Department for Education (DfE) daily Form, we have created a report at Reporting > Reports > Attendance (tab) > COVID-19 Attendance Figures.
The report will default to today's date and show you the number of students attending school overall, and in specific categories (e.g. vulnerable children and critical worker children). It will also display the number of students with the following attendance codes: X (Local Lockdown); X (Quarantine); X (Self-isolating); X (Shielding); and I (Confirmed case of COVID-19).
ScholarPack has created sub-categories for Code X in the teacher register and Manage Register to enable easier reporting for the DfE and school records (see here) .
This report can be filtered by Year Group from the Group dropdown, or All students (default setting) to show attendance figures for the whole school. If you require the former Covid codes from 2019 academic year, you can click the box to 'show historic attendance subcategories'.
Note: to obtain student names who fall into each category, click on a figure in a cell and the names for the students are displayed for you to export for your records.
For example, clicking on the number 9 in the cell for "X: self isolating" children on a particular day
results in the following table of names to appear:
