Description

A summary of attendance in education settings from Monday 23 March to Thursday 25 March and early years settings from Thursday 16 April to Thursday 25 March.

From 12 October, the education settings survey changed and therefore some metrics that used to be presented have been discontinued. The changes were made to give more comprehensive data about how many pupils are isolating from school for different reasons. There are no comparable figures to these from previous weeks.

This publication provides a high-level national summary of estimates from the Department for Education's education settings survey and local authority early years survey. We are working to expand the scope of published data in future releases.

Coverage

The data covers England only. Statistics in tables 1a, 1b, 1d, 1e, 2, 3 and 4 are given at national level. Statistics in tables 1c and 5 are given at local authority level. 

File formats and conventions

All files are .csv format. 

Where metrics have been discontinued due to a change in the education settings survey, a “-” symbol is used in that particular cell.
