Support from our team

To help support you to complete your censuses, you can book in a 15-minute session with our Support Team. Before the session, try to resolve as many Arbor and DfE Validations as possible so we can focus on supporting you with the trickiest errors during the session.

We'll be making these slots available closer to the time of the census.

 

Census guides

We've got dedicated Census Guides for each census, Autumn, Spring, Summer and Catholic. We include three School Census Guides, tailored to your school type! If you have nursery students, use the primary guide, if you have post-16 students use the secondary guide, and if you have both, use the all-through guide.

We'll be making these guides available closer to the time of the census.

 

Guidance from the DfE and the CES

The DfE provides lots of guidance on their website you can use to help you complete the School Census. You can search for information and find links to more help from this page.

The CES provides some guidance on their website you can use to help you complete the Catholic  Census. You can search for information and find links to more help from this page.
