  23. REMINDER Submission of the SWC is statutory. This means that schools do not need to obtain consent for the provision of data from individual members. However, schools and LA’s must satisfy Data Protection Act obligations and let staff know that the information is being collected

  24. Privacy Notices for Staffformerly Fair Procession Notice The DfE recommend that those already in receipt of Privacy Notices are advised of these new links as the previous links were to documents which have now been removed.

  25. Privacy Notices for Staffformerly Fair Procession Notice The Privacy Notice guidance has been updated. This can be found at:- http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/adminandfinance/schooladmin/ims/datacollections/schoolcensus

  26. Privacy Notices for Staffformerly Fair Procession Notice DEVON SCHOOLS ONLY The Privacy Notice guidance has been updated. This can be found at:-http://devon.gov.uk/j4s-privacynotice

  27. Data Checking Sheets There is a staff data checking form report available from the Scomis website http://faq.scomis.org/kb7560/ Follow the instructions on the faq to import and run the report. The report does not contain contract information.

  28. Reminder Temporary Teacher Numbers should not be submitted. If a Teacher Number is not available, then the corresponding field should be left blank and a note sent to the local authority or put against the query in COLLECT to explain why.

  29. Reminder Where staff are acting up within the same school, the Department’s preference would be for contract information on the acting up post, not the substantive post, to be returned.

  30. Reminder Please do not remove the “Eligible for SWR” tick from a member of staff’s record who has left. The SWC collects historical data, so may need their information to be supplied. If they have left before the start of the SWC period, they will be automatically excluded from the collected data

  31. Reminder If a member of staff has more than one contract and one is required for SWC, then you will need to leave the tick in “Eligible for SWR” on their record. You will then need to email your LA/DfE to tell them which contract information to exclude via Collect. You will need to manually record the name and contract details of the staff member on your detail reports to ensure a true and correct record.

  32. PREPARATION SIMS requires a Fileset provided by Capita This can contain: • Files used to determine what is included in the return • Updates to the Validation Errors Summary • Updates to the Summary reports • Updates to the Detail reports

  33. PREPARATION The current fileset for SWC is number 116. When you have run the Create and Validate routine, the Validation Fileset ID is displayed on the left-hand side of the Summary panel header. If you are not on Fileset 116 you can follow the instructions on http://faq.scomis.org/kb2896/

  34. PREPARATION Run the Pay Related Checking Reports to ensure all Service Terms are mapped correctly Reports – Run Reports – Focus – Service Terms Run the following reports • ST Pay Scale Definitions • ST Allowances • ST Post Definitions These reports will show the mappings for each Service Term in use.

  35. Curriculum Information on the curriculum is only required from Secondary Schools with timetabling software that interfaces with their MIS.

  36. Curriculum The default requirement is the week in which the census date falls. Subject code, hours taught and year groups must be recorded.

  37. Curriculum Information is required for all teachers in regular service, as well as teaching assistants where they are timetabled.

  38. Curriculum - Hours If your school operates a timetable cycle covering two weeks, then an average figure over that period should be calculated and submitted. The SIMS SWC software does this for you – as tested by a secondary school last year

  39. Curriculum – Year Group This must reflect the NC Year Group to whom each subject is being delivered. Year 10 students on an accelerated GCSE course should be shown as Year 11

  40. Staff Absences Absence data must be entered in SIMS.net and is being collected for staff employed in the previous academic year i.e. 1st September 2011 to 31st August 2012. This includes many types of absences, such as sickness, compassionate leave and secondment periods.

  41. Staff Absences • Absence data is only required for teachers and teaching assistants. It is optional for other members of staff. • Absence data due to training is included in the return but is not reported upon as it is not a statutory requirement

  42. Staff Absences • Examples of activities or circumstances that are not counted as absence for School Workforce Census are:- • taking part in activities such as field trips • days that are non-working days under a person’s contract • PPA time • INSET days • NQT non-contact time • Training • Working at a Consortium school or a Primary/Secondary linked school • attending meetings that are part of an individual’s normal duties

  43. Working days lost – sickness only It is important to accurately record the number of working days missed Good practice would be to discuss the period of absence and working days lost with the member of staff at a “return to work” meeting. Staff Absences

  44. Schools using Cover software Where absences are recorded via Cover, some but not all of the SWC required fields are completed in the Absences panel. The additional details will need to be entered manually before the Census is run. Where absences are recorded via the Absences panel, the relevant fields are copied to the Cover software. The Cover record does not require any further input. Staff Absences
