Pre-school 2014 Carrie Graham Statistician, Children and Families
Background Centre-based ( 2,500 centres) Online return completed by pre-school centres From 2012 local authorities have ability to check returned data
What’s happening in 2014? 1.Changes to centre-based collection 2. Pilot of MIS collection of pupil data
Changes to centre-based collection Looking into ways to simplify LAs ability to amend returned data Centrally employed – adding fields to online collection for LAs to record the total number/FTE of centrally employed staff Incorporating results from both MIS and centre- based returns into the summary reports so you can sign off total data at that point
MIS pre-school pupil 2014 Pilot collection of pre-school data through the pupil census in 2014 Staff data for same centres still collected through online centre-based returns Will pilot also collecting staff data in 2015
Benefits of MIS collection Less duplication if these data are already held in MIS by local authorities. Should ensure that the data being reported is the data you are seeing on local systems If we can collect pupil and staff data on all pre-school education centres in your LA, no need for online centre-level collection
Over to you… Any issues with centre-level collection that we could change for next year? o Summary reports? o Wording of questions? o Guidance notes? Collection of all pre-school education data via MIS?
