School Spring Census – Thursday 17 January 2019
The School Spring Census will take place on Thursday 17 January 2019.
DfE Fileset 1100 was included in the SIMS Autumn Upgrade but this fileset will not validate the census nor generate a summary. As soon as a valid fileset is released we will make it available to schools. All schools must import a valid fileset.
Download the Helpline Guidance notes which have been uploaded to the Learn Together Hub.
Download the DfE School Census 2018-19 guide for schools and LAs – it details exactly what data will be collected in in census.
This census collects details of class activities at a specific time of day on Spring Census Day (17 January 2019). The ‘selected time’ is based on the last digit of a school’s DfE Establishment number as follows:
- 0, 1 or 5 = 1 hour before the end of morning school
- 2, 3 or 6 = 1 hour after the start of afternoon school
- 4, 7, 8 or 9 = 1 hour after the start of morning school
The ICT Service is also offering a training session for Preparing for School Census on Tuesday 8 January 2019 from 9.30am – 12.00pm. Book online and ensure you are prepared.
