    Fileset 503 for Spring 2017 Census is now available

    Fileset 503 for Spring 2017 census is now available from our website.  If you are an English School this fileset is exactly the same as Fileset 502.  Please login and go to client area – downloads – census to find the fileset and instructions on how to download and import the new fileset if required.  Please create a new census once you have imported the new fileset.

    Fileset 503 provides the following improved WG validation for PLASC 2017 for Welsh Schools.

    1. Rule 12827 amended so that it only triggers for infant classes
    2. Rule 12828 amended so that it only triggers for junior classes

    Known issues with Fileset 503

    Unfortunately, there is a mistake in the DfE coding of validation rule 9999 when applied to Admissions Appeals that means the validation error will be incorrectly triggered for all Primary and Middle deemed Primary Schools with a Governance of Voluntary Added, Foundation or Academy.  We have alerted the DfE to this issue.

    The DfE have now informed Capita that they will be correcting their COLLECT validation, but not the school validation.  You should note that Capita have made it clear to the DfE that they are happy to revise their Fileset at any point to deal with DfE mistakes and that they believe that their correction of their mistakes in COLLECT validation but not in school validation creates an unnecessary burden for schools.
