Can we add new attendance codes to mark students with?

It is not possible for schools to add their own attendance codes. This is because codes need to map back to one of the values on the list of agreed codes, outlined in CBDS (the DfE's common data set), to be reported in the census.

When recording attendance, you will need to select the most appropriate code - you can view a full list of our codes and how to use them here: Attendance codes and how they count towards statutory attendance. Please contact the DfE to confirm which code to use if you are unsure.
