Error 5235: 2 year old basis for funding is missing or an invalid value for a two year old with funded hours.

This is for Spring Census and looks at 2 year old students born between 1st January and 31st December with Funded Hours recorded in their profile.

Funded hours are recorded in the Extended tab under School Information - 


NOTE: Parents must meet a criteria to be eligible for 2 year old funding, so if there are hours entered against Funded Hours there must also be a basis for funding.

This is recorded further down under Further Information - 


  • If the parent is eligible for 2 year old funding - you need to select a basis of either Economic criteria (low income), High-level SEN or disability or Looked after or adopted from care.
  • If the parent is not eligible for 2 year old funding - you will need to remove the 'Funded Hours' figure.

Once you have updated this, make sure you save then go back to your census page and recalculate.

To view the criteria for 2 year old funding see - Free education and childcare for 2-year-olds
