The ‘Pupil absence in England: spring term’ statistical first release, previously published in August, has been discontinued. User feedback identified this as the least useful of the 4 pupil absence releases each year: it is followed in October by a far more comprehensive release of combined autumn/spring absence data. The 3 remaining releases are unaffected - specifically, the autumn term release, the combined autumn/spring term release and the full year release.
