For students who are not attending school, you may be running online classes or supplying work to them.
The DfE does not collect information on attendance for online classes and work. As such, any students who are not physically present on-site due should be marked with the correct absence code, regardless if they are attending online classes.
We advise only marking students as present if they are physically in school to prevent safeguarding issues (e.g. in case of a fire evacuation).
Although it is not currently possible to track attendance for online classes in Arbor, we integrate with a number of distance learning providers - you can see how to set up a connection here. You can also join the discussion inthe Arbor Community to see how other schools are managing online classes.
