Helplines EXTRA – Upload Validation Fileset 1403
Article published: 14 January 2020
The School Spring Census 2020 is taking place this Thursday 16 January 2020.
Validation Fileset 1403 has now been released. All schools must import this fileset before authorising and submitting the School Spring Census.
Centrally Hosted Schools can import the Fileset from the Manifest Files folder or from the Helpline Advice and Guidance drive in Central Hosting.
Locally Hosted schools will receive the fileset by separate email.
Once the fileset has been imported it will be necessary to log out and back into SIMS and then create and validate the census again.
Please note the DFE have advised that there is a possible issue with school validation (the problem does not exist for DFE COLLECT validation). Query 1849 (Please check: A pupil aged 3 or 4 recorded with post looked after arrangements would be expected to be in receipt of early years pupil premium with a basis for funding of ‘RO’ or ‘RB’). The query should not be triggered where Early Years Pupil Premium Receipt is not included, e.g. pupil aged 5 and above. If this query is generated but invalid for your school it can be ignored, as the query should not be generated when the census is uploaded to COLLECT.
