Summer 2023 School Census – Fileset 2403

Current fileset: 2403 – This fileset is now available

ESS have released the following:

The release of this fileset has been ‘driven’ by the release of the WG summary report files. We do not consider the distribution of the re-released DfE files to be a high priority as the School Census Summer 2023 return file has already been provided to the DfE by most schools in England.

The WG has tested the upload of Attendance Collection 2023 return files and has been able to confirm that our use of the original <ULN> tag rather than the new <UniqueLearnerNumber> tag is acceptable. We understand that the only change to the WG summary report files is a correction to the version number and release date.
