Guide for schools and local authorities to the term-on-term queries in COLLECT.



You should use this guide while completing the school census in COLLECT, DfE’s centralised data collection and management system.

COLLECT automatically checks your data for substantial increases or decreases between the current term and the previous term and generates term-on-term queries.
