    Hi All,
    Just wanted some advice about putting 'u' on a register. In what case would you use it and should we try and avoid it because of the affects that it will have on our attendance?
    Many thanks

    Code U means "Arrived in school after registration closed" doesn't it? So that's when you'd use it presumably.

    Or am I missing the point of your question?

    I was always told that if they arrived during registration it was "late before register closed" - and after that, it was the office who marked them in so it wasn't my problem. In one school I worked in, they kept the register "open" at the office until 9.30, in order to reduce the incidence of "late after register closed", which I thought was rather dubious.

    you can always change the code you put in - once in, it's not superglued.
