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 could you provide this information from Summer 2019 censuses (May 2019)?

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

Yours faithfully,

Ella Taylor

Please provide this information from the most recent complete census
(Summer Census 2019).”

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 summer school census and contains the local
authority number, 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
software supplier name as this is 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.

Kind Regards

Department for Education
