What extra data items are required for the Spring School Census?

 

Question - What extra data items are required for the Spring School Census?

Answer - There are additional manual fields on the Spring Census, these areas must be filled in directly via Admin > Census > Spring Census > Spring Census Specific Data. The data will not be pulled from other areas of ScholarPack.  If the words are highlighted in red this means the field has not yet been populated.

Admission Appeals (not for Nursery Schools/PRU’s) - figures on admission appeals are collected for schools that were responsible for their own appeals -  See page 40 of the School Census guidance for more information.

Classes as Taught (not for Nursery Schools/PRUs) - Class information details are required for all classes running at a selected time on Census day.  The selected time is based on the last digit of the schools Estab number as below:

See page 44 of the DfE School Census guidance for more information.

Pupil Reconciliation (not for Nursery Schools/PRU’s)  - The purpose of this reconciliation is to check that the number of registered pupils for whom the return contains individual pupil data is consistent with the number of pupils reported in classes as taught.

See page 43 of the DfE School Census guidance for more information.

Free School Meals Taken - This records the total number of free school meal (‘FSM’) eligible pupils who had a free school meal at lunchtime on census day. Pupils are recorded as ‘FSM’ eligible where they meet the ‘FSM’ eligibility criteria (that is, in respect to family income) and make a claim. Pupils who are in receipt of a free school lunch due only to the infant pupil universal entitlement are not recorded as ‘FSM’ and not included in the free school meals taken record.

School Childcare - Schools must provide information on the provision of – or signposting to – childcare, together with the nature of the childcare provided / signposted.
