Management Information relating to Attendance at educational settings during the COVID-19 outbreak

Date published: 24 June 2020

Note: To coincide with the end of the academic year in Northern Ireland, the temporary data collection stopped on Monday, 29 June 2020. The final bulletin covers the period from 22 to 29 June 2020. The data behind the publications are available here

The management information presented in the following bulletins are derived from a temporary data collection from grant-aided schools and educational settings. This data collection started on 23 March 2020, when settings closed due to COVID-19. Figures reflect the responses made by settings to a daily survey.


From 23 March 2020 a daily survey has been issued to educational settings.  This was the date when educational settings in Northern Ireland were closed to pupils, with the exception of:

  1. Vulnerable children – where “Schools should work in conjunction with parents/ carers, the Education Authority (EA) and, where appropriate, social services to identify and assess vulnerable children to determine if their best interests would be met by the school’s continued supervised learning.”; and
  2. Children, up to Year 10 (age 14 proxy), of key workers – where “no other viable option for their child’s supervision” was available.
