DfE educational setting status form
13 Sep 2021
The DfE are continuing to ask educational settings for daily information about pupil and staff attendance, COVID cases and setting closures / partial closures during coronavirus (COVID-19).
This data is being collected to help manage the impact of and response to COVID-19 on the education sector and to inform government decision making.
Schools are asked to update their information via the educational setting status form by 2pm each day during September.
From Friday 1 October, the form will then move from daily reporting to weekly to reduce the time commitment.
Many thanks to those schools who have continued to regularly submit the form since the beginning of term.
The information is also used by the local authority to help us manage queries from members, government departments and other agencies and to inform our support for schools. We would therefore ask schools to try and complete the form as often as you can over the next few weeks, and then weekly from October.
Many thanks for your continued time and patience with this. If you have any questions about completing the form please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
