Wellbeing Audit logo We're launching our first ever free student wellbeing audit to help you put wellbeing first. Save your place.

What is Attendance?

Attendance is our online registration software that syncs directly with your MIS to display punctuality and attendance rates or, if you're a SIMS school, allows you to writeback attendance data and keep track of all daily unauthorised absences in your school.

Easily identify unauthorised absences

With our Daily Absences Dashboard, Attendance Officers have a clear overview of any unauthorised absences. By providing them with a clear list of students who are absent that day and easy access to guardian contact details, staff can quickly follow up with parents and identify the reason for absence.

  • Automated dashboard showing students who are absent daily
  • Quick access to parents’ contact details stored in your MIS
  • Complete clarity over daily student absences and erratic attendance

Set clear attendance expectations

Attendance ensures all stakeholders are up to date on school policies and expectations when it comes to attendance. Schools can share attendance rates with both students and parents, and teachers can add registration notes for more information on pupils' absences.

  • Give teachers and students access to attendance rates and punctuality scores
  • Communicate clearly with colleagues around pupil attendance
  • Ensure everyone is on the same page when it comes to school policy

Effectively track remote attendance

Attendance in the current climate can be difficult to track with schools still having to navigate closures whether in part or full. With Attendance, teachers can take attendance from wherever they are for both in-school and remote learners whilst still communicating absences to colleagues.

  • Take attendance from anywhere
  • Attach comments to registration marks
  • Record attendance for in-class and remote learners

Seamless integration

Attendance integrates seamlessly with your MIS and other Satchel One apps. For SIMS schools you can take attendance throughout the day and all data is written back to your MIS. For all other schools, we sync with your MIS to display key attendance data.

  • One-click to take Attendance for next lesson via Teacher Agenda
  • Display attendance and punctuality rates as they are inputted into your MIS
  • Enjoy access to Attendance reporting from your school’s learning platform
  • Import attendance codes to Satchel One from SIMS
  • Surface guardian contact data from SIMS in Satchel One
