I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

An Excel spreadsheet containing the requested information is enclosed.
This comes from the spring 2021 school census and contains the local
authority number, school establishment number, local authority name,
school URN, 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 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
