St. James' CE Primary School

School Census Day

Data collection requirements:

Three times each year we have a statutory obligation to take part in the Department of Education's school census. The next census date is Thursday 3rd October 2019

We are required by law to provide information about our pupils to the DfE under regulation 5 of The Education (Information About Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.   Some of this information is then stored in the National Pupil Database. This data sharing underpins school funding and educational attainment policy and monitoring. Details of data that the school shares, and with whom, forms part of our GDPR Policy and the Privacy Statements issued to you as parents and to you on behalf of your child/childen. These can be viewed on our website here.
