Summer school census 2019 and May background report

Count day for the summer school census and May background report is Thursday 16 May 2019. As usual, we ask that schools run their May background report and summer census on the designated day and return them by Friday 18 May 2019.

May background report

The May background data is used by the LA to supplement the summer school census collection with additional information such as religion, date of recent arrival and SEN type. The collated data is immensely useful to the authority for reporting achievement and attainment and informing priorities for resources. There are no additional data items for May background report 2019.

Summer school census

The summer school census is the smallest collection of the school year, but still a very important. There is a new data item included in summer school census that refers to before and after school childcare offered or promoted by your school.
