Non-statutory attendance sub codes were implemented in January 2021 to allow schools to report on COVID- related absences.
On 4th August 2022 the Department for Education (DfE) withdrew 'Addendum: recording attendance in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19) during the 2021 to 2022 academic year'. Please find DfE guidance here.
Code X: Not required to be in school - This code is used to record sessions that non-compulsory school age children are not expected to attend.
From September 2022 the DfE advises schools to refer to: Working Together improve school attendance. Please seek advice from your Local Authority, or the DfE, regarding attendance codes if required.
All Covid-19 sub codes have been deprecated and removed from registers for the 2022-23 academic year.
