School staff census

About the staff census

The census is an annual statutory collection of individual level data on teachers and support staff from local authorities, local authority-maintained schools, and academies.

The local authority has a role in co-ordinating and approving the submission of census data from all maintained schools. As part of this function, returns from maintained schools will be checked for errors or queries and the census team will inform your school of any required actions.

The last census day was 7 November 2019.
