Footnotes

  1. Sessions recorded as not attending due to COVID circumstances are included as possible sessions in 2020/21 and 2021/22 only, but not as an absence within absence rates.
  2. Data on absence rates for young carers is available for the first time from 2022/23.As this is a new data collection, we expect the quality of the data returns to improve over time as the collection becomes established. All schools (except nursery) must send this information as part of the Spring school census but the recording and handling of the information is at the school’s discretion. 79% of schools recorded no young carers in 2023.
  3. Total includes state-funded primary, secondary and special schools.
