How do I request a pupil’s missing ULN ?

Routines | Data Out | CTF | Export CTF Select option ULN Request/Update.

Select the pupils who require a ULN.

All students 14 & above will require a ULN Number

You must not include pupils whose data you have been asked to protect. This typically includes pupils in witness protection programmes, vulnerable learners, and certain offenders. If in doubt, please do not submit those pupils. You can call the MIAP Learner registration service helpdesk 0845 602 2589.

It does not matter to the ULN Service which destination you choose,  select either your own school or LA as the destination, or ‘Unknown’ which is often represented as XXX-XXXX. Then ensure that you make a note of the exact filename of the CTF file created for you and its location.
