DfE Information: interactive post-16 school census tool
Below is information issued by the DfE regarding the post-16 school census
Information: interactive post-16 school census tool
We have updated our post-16 interactive tool to support the return of accurate post-16 school census data. Some institutions risk not getting the funding they should because of inaccurate data.
The tool will help you understand:
how your data is used to calculate your post-16 funding
how common data errors affect your funding
We have updated some parts of the tool to reflect changes in the condition of funding from September 2019 and the inclusion of advanced maths into the large programme uplift. There are also updates to reflect collection of previous academic year data relating to:
planned learning hours
planned employability, enrichment and pastoral hours
maths/English GCSE prior attainment
We have added two new condition of funding flowcharts, in static and Interactive formats, to help you understand the policy.
Business managers and staff responsible for preparing and submitting the autumn school census return will find it useful.
A suite of ESFA funding reports will be available in COLLECT when the autumn census opens in October. They will show you how your data looks in relation to our post-16 funding calculations.
We strongly advise institutions to use these reports to help quality assure census returns.
The tool is in an Excel workbook. Please make sure that macros are enabled so that the workbook functions properly.
If you have any questions, please use our online enquiry form.

Update to guidance on the teachers’ pension employer contribution grant
The DfE has released further information regarding the teachers' pension employer contribution grant - Please refer below:
Information: update to guidance on the teachers’ pension employer contribution grant
The Department for Education (DfE) has updated the teachers’ pension employer contribution grant methodology, published in April this year, to provide further detail on the supplementary fund.
As announced in April, schools will be able to apply to the fund if their grant allocation falls short of their actual pension cost increase by more than 0.05% of their overall budget. We have now confirmed which funding streams we are using to define ‘overall budget’.
In October, we will publish school-level grant allocations and announce details of the supplementary fund, including how schools can apply.
