Dear Department for Education,

I would like to see a breakdown of which software is used by

Please could you provide this information in an Excel spreadsheet

School Name
School URN
Establishment Type (i.e. Community School, Nursery, Voluntary Aided
School, etc.)
Establishment Phase (i.e. Primary, Secondary)
MIS Software used

Please could you provide this information from the Spring 2019 and Summer 2019 censuses?

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

Dear ACCOUNT, Unmonitored,

In your previous response, you said:

"The January 2019 school census collection has concluded however, the data from this census will not be available until June 2019."

Now that we are in July, could you please provide me with an update as to when I can expect to receive the January census data?

Many thanks,
