Every school in England has a statutory duty to complete the school census each term.
|Autumn census||Thursday 6 October 2022|
|Spring census||Thursday 19 January 2023|
|Summer census||Thursday 18 May 2023|
Please make sure that pupil movements into and out of your school are finalised by the census date and that all pupils have their correct, permanent Unique Pupil Number (UPN) allocated.
If you are unable to find a pupil's UPN, please contact us and we will search our database for you – please do not issue new permanent UPNs without checking first.
Please note, failure to use the correct UPN could result in loss of funding to schools.
The deadline for all maintained schools to upload their approved return to COLLECT, is Friday 7 October 2022. Free schools and academies will have a later deadline set by the Department for Education (DfE), however, an early return would be appreciated wherever possible.
Please check the changes from previous school census for any new data items, or changes to existing ones.
You can view the latest approved notepad entries to be recorded against any queries generated in COLLECT.
If you have any census enquiries, please contact Debbie Peters on 01332 642710 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
