Autumn 2021 census return dates
The census date for the 2021 autumn school census is Thursday 7 October.
The local authority ask that maintained schools make their return by Friday 8 October, in order to give us enough time to thoroughly check your data and answer errors and queries.
The final deadline for approved submissions from local authorities and academies is Wednesday 3 November, but as usual the local authority ask that academies submit well ahead of this time in order to give us as much time as possible to check data and resolve errors, queries and duplicates.
