Question - How can I produce an attendance report for last academic year?
Answer - Head to Reporting>Reports>Attendance>Custom Attendance Report. Change the dates to the academic year you require, and when selecting year groups remember to use the students current year group. So, to report on last year's Reception to Year 6 you will need to choose Year 1 to Year 7 (as this is their current year group) by clicking and dragging your mouse through the year groups, or holding the control key whilst selecting the year groups.
Note: If you do not have the year group you require (e.g. Year 7) appearing in the Include Years column, you will need to to go Admin > Config > Core Setup > Years and create one.
