The Department does not hold the information in the format required. National data on pupil attendance in educational establishments since 23 March was last published on Tuesday 7 July at the following link, covering data up to Thursday 2 July:

The publication includes breakdowns of attendance statistics for both primary and secondary schools and colleges from 1 June.

The data is collected from individual education establishments and the published figures include estimates for non-response.
