Automatic pupil data feed - Update
Thank you to the majority of schools that have competed the information sharing agreement and Orchestra Client install request in preparation for the automatic pupil data feed.
I am pleased to advise that we are on track for this to be rolled out within the first half of the autumn term and can confirm that the installation files and documentation for Ealing Orchestra Lite is due to be released on the 1 October.
This will be provided directly to 3BM, Strictly Education, SIMs for Schools, Turn it on and School Business Services who will carry out the installation for those schools that are supported by these providers.
The schools that have advised us that they are not supported by the above providers or who use an MIS other than SIMS will receive the installation instructions directly from Ealing Education ICT.
The automatic pupil data feed will be replacing the current leavers and joiners reports that schools are required to send each week to comply with the updated Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations that came in to force on 1 September 2016. Please continue to provide these until you receive a notification to confirm that this is no longer required.
