Though Nova reports have been written to meet most needs, it may be that sometimes you will have a need to work with the data further, add in other information or simply report in a different way. When that is the case it is possible to export the matched CLA and attainment data for your Virtual School cohort via the Export Data sub-menu item of the Nova module. (If you do not have this permission available to you then please contact your Nexus Admin user who will be able to download it for you.)
From this page choose the required year, key stage and export combination, then click the Export To CSV button.
Note that the NPD CLA option is only available once the DfE have released that information to NCER and may not be available for the most recent year (depending on the timing.)
Due to the sensitivity of the data the download is made available as a password-protected ZIP.
Note or copy the password that appears on screen (taking care not to add any extra blank characters at the end) as you'll need it to decrypt the ZIP file and access the CSV file inside.
The CSV file can then be opened via MS Excel and used as required. Any changes made after download will not affect data in Nexus.
