The method of taking another staff member's register will depend on the permissions you've been given:
- Method 1 - If you have been added as a second teacher to the lesson, or the lesson has been assigned to you to cover, you can access it from your own calendar.
- Method 2 - If you have the Attendance: Administer All Students permission, you can take any staff member's register. You can take a look at the guide here for steps on how to check if you have this permission and have this assigned if you don't.
If you aren't able to get to a lesson register using the instructions below, this means you haven't been given access. Please ask your admin team to either give you permission or assign the cover lesson to you.
Method 1 - I've been assigned via cover
If you are covering the lesson, you will be able to take the register on behalf of another staff member. You will see the lesson you need to cover in your own calendar.
If you are likely to be covering the same lesson on an ongoing basis, it may be a better idea to request more permanent access - please ask your admin team to follow these instructions: Giving permission for other staff or teaching assistants to take attendance registers
Method 2 - I have permission to take any register
