School MIS suppliers as of the Autumn 2019 school census

Joshua Perry made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Education

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

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 the following information in an excel spreadsheet containing the following fields:

1. Local authority Number
2. Local authority Name
3. School Unique Reference Number (URN)
4. School name
5. Establishment Type (ie. community School, nursery, Voluntary aided school etc)
6. Establishment phase (i.e. primary, secondary)
7. MIS Software Used
8. Numbers of pupils on roll

NB previous responses to similar queries have excluded the school URN. If it is possible it would be preferable to include the URN, as this helps greatly when matching the census information with other DfE data releases.

Please provide this information from the October 2019 Census.

Thank you in advance for your assistance

Yours faithfully,

Joshua Perry

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 2019 autumn school census and contains the local
authority number, local authority name, establishment (school) number,
school name, URN, 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
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
