following publication of the aforementioned statistical first release.

In the meantime, an Excel spreadsheet containing the information from the
autumn 2020 school census can be obtained from [2]MIS Supplier summary for
autumn 2020 and Spring 2021 - a Freedom of Information request to
Department for Education - WhatDoTheyKnow. It contains the local authority
number, local authority name, 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
