How do I resolve errors regarding Childcare places?

What are these errors?

In the Spring Census, your school is required to provide information on the number and type of childcare places your school provides.

There are four types of childcare that you have to provide information on:

  • B - Before school
  • A - After school
  • H - Holiday provision
  • U - Nursery for ages 0-4 (for more than 9 hours/day, not a provision that is only available during school hours or where children can only attend for a morning or afternoon session).

For more information on this, take a look at the DfE’s School census 2018 to 2019 Guide, pages 48-56.

Some schools only provide childcare for a particular age group, and many schools do not provide childcare places at all. As such, if you are presented with errors 2910 or 2950, you will have to answer whether there is on-site provision and whether the school signposts off-site provision for each of the four types of childcare.

You will notice these errors appear in you DfE Validation section of your census.

Error 2970

To resolve Error 2970, if your school provides childcare for under 5s, the number of hours of childcare offered per day must be greater or equal to 9.

There are two ways to resolve this, depending on the type of childcare you offer:

Update your childcare information to correctly reflect the start and end times by going to School > School Details.

In the Childcare places, select the Under Fives childcare.
