READ IF YOU HAVE A SIXTH FORM
It's getting beyond a joke now
Some leavers can be excluded from the Return who should be included (Updated 06/10 15:00)
The group of leavers included in the Census for a school with a Sixth Form should include those who left in the Autumn Term 2011. Unfortunately, there is an issue with our coding that means that this group is not included.
We recommend that schools with Sixth Forms delay uploading to COLLECT until they have checked if they have any Post 16 leavers between 01/08/2011 and the 31/12/2011 (inclusive) who were on roll for more than six weeks in that period.
We have provided a Report Definition to help schools identify Post 16 leavers between 01/08/2011 and the 31/12/2011 (SupportNet Resource 20117). Any of the students listed that left before completing six weeks of their courses do not need to be included in the Census.
We are very sorry for this mistake on our part. The work around is to apply the unlock patch and then add the student Learning Aims information directly in the Census application. The work around will not be suitable for a large group of students, so we have created patch 17512 to solve the problem and this patch is being made available from SOLUS.
If the school opts for patch 17512 they will need to recalculate the Learning Aims panel to benefit from the corrected functionality and all manual edits to that panel will be lost. Direct entry of the missing Learning Aims information can proceed without recalculation and loss of manual edits.
