School Census Spring 14 - Autumn Release 13 School Census Spring 2014: School Phase Pupil Referral Unit PRU (Pupil Referral Unit) Census has been dropped PRU is now included in School Census as a School Phase (PR) This means that the several items will be included in School Census for the first time, but only where the School Phase is PR or deemed to be PR, e.g. Teenage Mothers

Time in Unit Provider Status 13 School Census Spring 2014: School Phase All Though All Through included as a School Phase (AT) SIMS menu routes have been adjusted so schools with Phase AT have access to both Primary and Secondary functionality

Schools that move from Phase SS (Secondary School) to Phase AT will notice changes to School Census Spring in several areas, e.g. Class Type Infant Admissions Class/Reg Group Information 14 School Census Spring 2014: New Items

Top-up Funding Indicator Those pupils on roll on Census Day for whom a school receives top-up funding from the local authority or in the case of a PRU another school. Top-up funding is supplied by local authorities from their high needs budget directly, or in the case of PRUs through other schools, to meet the additional costs of support for individual pupils. This data item will be used for post-16 funding allocation purposes, to inform the development of the high needs funding

system in the future, to monitor changes in high-cost pupil numbers over time and for estimating future costs and allocations. 15 School Census Spring 2014: New Items Top-up Funding Indicator Schools will only need this information for Census purposes, so we have catered for it via Statutory Returns Tools

Graphic to be updated 16 School Census Spring 2014: New Items Adopted from Care Those children on roll on Census Day who were looked after immediately before adoption. It will be up to those who have parental responsibility (adoptive

parents, special guardians and carers) to decide if they wish schools to know whether such children have been adopted, or are under a special guardianship order or a residence order. 17 School Census Spring 2014: New Items Adopted from Care Schools will only need this information for Census purposes, so we have catered for it via Statutory Returns Tools

Graphic to be updated 18 School Census Spring 2014: Family Holidays Attendance Attendance code F will be collected if it exists for the Autumn Term, but the code should not be used from September 2013

onwards ,as it is redundant Quote from the DfE From September 2013 Code F: Extended family holiday authorised by the school becomes redundant as schools no longer need to agree an extended leave beyond a statutory limit (we have removed the statutory threshold of ten school days). We accept that software suppliers may not be able to completely disable Code F until their Autumn Release; in this case for Autumn term absence data collected in the Spring School Census we will aggregate data for Code F with Code H: Authorised absence due to

family holiday. 19 School Census Spring 2014: Key Dates Census Date: 16/01/2014 Age: Age as at 31/08/2013 Attendance:

SupportNet Resource 21231 26 Disadvantaged Pupils Identifier Disadvantaged Pupils Identifier: Vision Vision: Our current Pupil Premium functionality identifies the pupils the DfE identified for calculating the Pupil Premium funding

This is helpful in many ways, but is confusing when used to identifier other disadvantaged pupils It would cause less confusion if we provide separate functionality for the school to indentify who they consider to be their disadvantaged pupils If we provide a Disadvantaged Pupils Identifier we would also make it available to Assessment and Discover Question: Should we add a Disadvantaged Pupils Identifier?

School Census Autumn 2014: Post 16 School Census Autumn 2014: Post 16 Post 16 Learning Aims: Core Learning Aim Planned Post 16 Programme Hours Employment Status The DfE has decided not to collect information in the Census on prior attainment in English and Maths, although this attainment

will have an impact on funding School Census Autumn 2014: Post Core Learning Aim Summer Release 2013: Core Learning Aim added to Focus | Student | Courses Only needed for vocational programmes School Census Autumn 2014: Post 16 Planned Programme Hours

In future years the collection of these items will be restricted to hours for the year of the Census (2014/15), but for this first collection only, there will also be a retrospective collection of hours for the previous year (2013/14). New functionality will be provide in SIMS where schools will be able to list their Post 16 pupils and enter planned hours for a particular Academic Year; a hyperlink to Student Course will be included School Census Autumn 2014: Post 16 Employment Status

Summer Release 2014: Identification of students who are in full time employment (defined as 20 hours or more per week) News Feed SupportNet Resource 20996 Unique Learner Number: Request Via CTF

Unique Learning Number: Request via CTF ULN Request via CTF: Many school have had their CTFs rejected by S2S In nearly all cases the rejection has been on the grounds of an incomplete address The S2S validation on addresses is very stringent, which makes non sense as LRS are only interested in the Post Code We understood the DfE would sort this out before the rush began to get ULN in place for School Census Spring 2014
