Census Fileset 601 is now available to allow schools to carry out a dry run of their Summer 2017 Census return.
IMPORTANT - Fileset 601 is a Beta version and should be used for dry runs only. It should NOT be used for authorising the return.
For those schools wishing to make an early start on their Census return, fileset 601 will allow you to see a list of validation queries and errors. However a newer version of the fileset will need to be imported into SIMS before authorising the return. We anticipate a new fileset will be made available by DfE in the next week or two and will inform schools accordingly.
To import the fileset please follow the instructions below:
