I propose to take Questions Nos. 966 and 969 together.

During school closures, schools were not required to record attendance in the usual manner. Any records kept in relation to engagement during school closure periods are retained at school level and my Department does not collect this data.

TESS adopted a child welfare approach during the periods of school closure and all TESS staff worked locally with schools to support those students and families identified as needing additional assistance to engage with remote learning.
