School MIS supplier stats, May 17

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Education,

I would like to see a breakdown of which software is used by
schools to return the school census to the department e.g. their MIS supplier.

Please could you provide this information in an Excel spreadsheet
containing the following fields:

Local Authority Number
School Number
School Name
Establishment Type (i.e. Community School, Nursery, Voluntary Aided
School, etc.)
Establishment Phase (i.e. Primary, Secondary)
MIS Software used
Number of pupils on roll

Please provide this information from the most recent complete
census (May/17).

Thank you in advance for your help - it is much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Rich Harley

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(“the Act”).

 

An Excel spreadsheet containing the requested information is enclosed. The
spreadsheet contains the local authority number, establishment number,
establishment name, establishment type, establishment phase, MIS supplier
software code and number of pupils for each school. It is not possible to
provide the software supplier name as this information is not collected.
However, the software supplier code we have included contains the software
supplier name in the majority of cases. 

 

I have provided data from the most recent complete census which is the
summer school census 2017.

 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number below in any future communications.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you should
make a complaint to the Department by writing to me within two calendar
months of the date of this letter.  Your complaint will be considered by
an independent review panel, who were not involved in the original
consideration of your request. 

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint to the
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
