Spring Census 2021

School Workforce Census

The DfE has confirmed that the Spring Census 2021 will go ahead as planned

Following consultations with schools and their representatives, the DfE has decided to go ahead with the school Census Spring 2021 as planned.

Timescales will remain as scheduled, but the DfE understands that there may be individual circumstances that make this difficult to comply with.

If this is the case, the DfE will be asking schools and LA’s to let them know as soon as possible, so that they can provide support where needed.

Census Day – Thursday 21st January 2021

We have also been advised that Fileset 1704 should be available from Friday 15th January 2021. We will inform our schools and customers once this has been made available.

And remember if you need a helping hand or would like us to carry out the Census on your behalf then get in touch today!
