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 this information in an Excel spreadsheet
containing the following fields:

Local Authority Number
Establishment Number
School Name
School URN
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 Spring 2018, Summer 2018 and Autumn 2018
censuses.

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

Yours faithfully,

Ella Taylor

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

An Excel spreadsheet containing each of the requested terms information is
enclosed. The spreadsheet contains the local authority number,
establishment number, establishment name, establishment unique reference
number, establishment type, establishment phase, MIS supplier software
code and number of pupils for each school. It is not possible to provide
the software supplier name as this information is not collected. However,
the software supplier code we have included 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.

Kind Regards

Kirsty Knox
