How do I put in attendance marks on an inset day or holiday?

How to put in attendance on an inset or holiday day will depend on whether the day off applies to the whole school or just to certain student groups.

The whole school is off

You'll need to add the holiday or inset day to your academic calendar to remove the registers for that day using these instructions: Adding a planned school closure

As long as registers were not opened that day, you won't need to take attendance or input marks. This tells data collections such as the Census that attendance didn't need to be taken that day.

If registers were opened, please see our guidance here: Registers still there when school is marked as closed

Only some students are off

Make sure there isn't an inset or holiday day logged in your calendar to enable registers to be created for today. You can follow these instructions if you can't see today's registers: Why don't we have registers today?
