SENT ON BEHALF OF GARETH DRAWMER, HEAD OF ACHIEVEMENT AND LEARNING
You may be aware that the DfE attendance portal is not currently operating as they revise it to meet the needs of the new lockdown. In the interim we have devised a daily return that will allow us to understand the situation in schools across Buckinghamshire. It is vital that we receive this information on a daily basis so that we can understand the pressure on schools and look to solutions which will help you. We cannot do this without you and although it is (hopefully a small) administrative burden, it will ultimately be of benefit to you.
The file will be in Anycomms for your staff to return. I would ask that it is completed by 3pm each day to enable us to carry out daily analysis on the situation.
I thank you in advance for your co-operation,
Head of Service
Achievement & Learning
