We’re currently trialling collecting daily attendance data from participating schools, trusts and local authorities. The reports will be released in phases and schools/responsible bodies will be contacted directly when their reports have been released.

Accessing the data:

The attendance data reports are available at:

https://viewyourdata.education.gov.uk/.


You should see a ‘school daily attendance’ tab:

School level access:

This is accessed via DFE Sign-In by using the ‘school or academy’ option.

 

If you have been contacted but cannot see the ‘school daily attendance’ tab, in the first instance, the approver for your organisation will need to log into DFE Sign-In, grant the relevant individuals access to the View Your Education Data service and assign the ‘school attendance data’ role. Information on how to do this can be found at:

 

https://help.signin.education.gov.uk/approvers.

 

Once this has been done, the dashboard in the above screenshot should be available.

If you need support with DFE Sign-In, information can be found at:

Local authority and trust access:


This is accessed via IDAMS by using the ‘local authority’ or ‘multi or single academy trust’ options.

 

If you have been contacted but cannot see the ‘school daily attendance’ tab, in the first instance, the super user for your organisation will need to log into IDAMS and assign the ‘View Your Education Data - School Attendance Data’ role. Information on how to do this can be found in the super user guidance at:

Once this has been done, the dashboard in the above screenshot should be available.
