Independent schools would complete the Independent Census rather than the School Census. You can still run the School Census if you wish to, but you should not submit this data.
Completing the census
The census module can be found via Admin > Census > Independent Schools Census.
Click into each of the sections on the left-hand side and insure the correct information is recorded.
You may need to add data by clicking the Create New button.
Once you've completed filling in the details, return to the overview.
On the right, you can download your census file out of ScholarPack.
This is downloaded via xml format, and you must upload this to the correct place as we are unable to submit this for you.
I can't see the Independent Schools Census?
Click your school name in the top right of ScholarPack and click Edit on this page.
Make sure your School Type is set to Independent, then scroll down and click the Update button.
I can't see where to enter pupil numbers on the Independent Schools Census?
ScholarPack automatically populates the Independent Census with pupil numbers based on your on roll data, so you do not need to add these in manually.
Can I see past censuses?
Any Census that was run on your former MIS (management information system) will not migrate to ScholarPack. You are best advised to download and save your census files prior to losing your old MIS.
Unlike the School and Workforce census, you cannot view past Independent censuses run in ScholarPack from Admin > Census > Past Census Viewer.
