Bulk update of Country of birth

We have received numerous calls regarding errors in census caused by missing country of birth. We understand that you may not have  received your data collection sheets back from parents yet and therefore we are ensuring that all supported schools are aware of the bulk update tool which allows you to set “not yet obtained” for the country of birth field and therefore remove the census error.

Please note: We strongly advise that if this process is followed, you must ensure that the correct information is entered once received from the parents.

Key Stage Assessment Data

This Year CS System Leeds (Data management as was) have requested that the Key Stage 1 and 2 Teacher Assessment Data Returns are made by entering the data in your MIS system.  For the majority of customers this will be Capita SIMS.  In previous years they have always provided a spreadsheet version but have not offered this option this time around.

Connect-Up have already import the Template mark sheets in your SIMS system ready for you to enter the required data.  You do not need to be using SIMS for your curriculum assessment data, although Capita SIMS does have an excellent free Assessment Without Levels package built into it.

Please find below links to our guidance notes on how to make the returns.  If you have any problems following these notes then please contact the SIMS team on 0113 2105008.
