These documents are to help schools, academies and local authorities complete the school census spring 2014, using COLLECT (Collections Online - Learners, Education, Children and Teachers), the department’s centralised data collection and management system.

Validation queries occur in COLLECT when the data is unusual or unexpected, reflecting a potential inaccuracy or omission. A return cannot be processed unless all queries have been explained with a note or corrected.
