National Identity and Country of Birth

Dear Parent/Carer

It is a requirement for the school to provide census information, relating to our student records which are held in the school, to the Department for Education (DfE) three times per year.

This Autumn we have been informed that new requirements for this census data include every student’s national identity and country of birth. This is in addition to the ethnicity data which you have already provided us with.

We need to ensure that we have the correct information recorded for your son/daughter before this data is submitted to the DfE.

Therefore we ask that you please inform us of your son/daughter’s National identity and country of birth using the tear off slip below and return it to school reception no later than Monday 3rd October.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding this, please contact the school and ask for the data team.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued cooperation.

Yours sincerely

Chris Smith

Deputy Headteacher
