School census

Spring school census 2019

The spring school census takes place on Thursday, 17 January 2019.

The DfE will use the spring school census data to inform the funding they give the LA for the Early and High Needs Blocks of DSG Funding.

The Pupil Premium amount for the academic year 2019/20 will be based on the pupils in this census who are eligible for Deprivation Free School Meals, are post Looked After, or who are classed as Service Children.

The DfE will collect information about nursery pupils in receipt of Early Years Pupil Premium and Disability Access Fund grant in the spring census. In addition, the spring census is used to produce the published statistics about your school.

We ask that schools run their census on the designated day and return it by Friday 18 January. We highly recommend that you do at least one trial run well before the census day.
