Exemption codes for when there are more than 30 students in a class for census

For the spring census, schools with Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 classes need to report on pupil numbers in their classes at the time of the census.

If there are more than 30 pupils in the class, you'll need to provide a reason why by way of an 'exception'. The available exceptions are:

  • Teachers on PPA or LMT - If the class is being supervised by a teaching assistant due to teachers being on PPA or LMT, record the number of teachers on PPA or LMT in this field.
  • Exception A - The number of children admitted outside the normal admissions round with an education, health and care plan specifying a school.
  • Exception B - The number of looked after children and previously looked after children admitted outside the normal admissions round.
  • Exception C - The number of children admitted, after the initial allocation of places, because of a procedural error made by the admission authority or local authority in the original application process.
  • Exception D - The number of children admitted after an independent appeals panel upholds an appeal.
  • Exception E - The number of children who move into the area outside the normal admissions round for whom there is no other available school within a reasonable distance (the LA has to confirm that the child qualifies under this category).
  • Exception F - The number of children of UK service personnel admitted outside the normal admissions round.
  • Exception G - The number of children whose twin or sibling is admitted otherwise than as an excepted pupil.
  • Exception H - The number of children with special educational needs who are normally taught in a special educational needs unit attached to the school, or registered at a special school, who attend some infant classes within the mainstream school.
