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 (Oct 18).

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 2018 Autumn school census collection has not yet concluded and data
from this census will not be available until after 30 November. I have
noted your email address and will forward you the requested information
immediately following this date.

 

In the meantime, an Excel spreadsheet containing the latest available
information is enclosed. This comes from the 2018 summer school census and
contains the local authority number, establishment (school) number, school
name, establishment type, establishment phase, software supplier code and
the number of pupils in each school. It is not possible to provide the
software supplier name as this is information is not held. However, the
included software supplier code contains the software supplier name in the
majority of cases.

 

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