Abstract

School absences have been a major policy concern in Scotland and around the world. Absenteeism is predicted to rise in the coming years due to the long-term scarring effect of the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, in Scotland, school absences rose after the school closures, and these were due to non-Covid-19 and Covid-19 related reasons (Sosu & Klein, 2021; Public Health Directorate, 2022). Socioeconomic inequalities in school attendance have also risen sharply since the first period of school closures (Sosu & Klein, 2021).
