There are times when you wish to mark a student as being “not required” at school so they do not show up as being either present or absent. When you create this code, students marked with it will have their half days at school adjusted to reflect a lesser number of days attending. This can be used when senior students start later than junior students, or when Pre-Schoolers/Kindy students are only booked in for particular days.
Below is an example for Australian Schools (not marked absent is considered as present in Australia, in New Zealand, the roll will need to have been marked as present):
A year 4 student starts school on a Monday and is present all week. By Friday, they will be shown as being present 5 days of 5.
A year 10 student at the same school is scheduled to start Wednesday. If no roll marking takes place, they to will show as present 5 days of 5.
If the above year 10 student is marked as “Not Required At School” for Monday and Tuesday, at the end of the week they will show present 3 days of 3.
To create a “Not Required at School Code”, go to
Path: Attendance Management > Attendance Codes
