Both gender and NC Year are charts that will include all of your CLA cohort as they do not rely on a match to another dataset to be populated.
While NC Year will be matched on the school census if it is available, we will infer a child's NC Year based on the date of birth available on the SSDA903 where a match to school census is not successful.
If you see the hand when hovering over a chart, it means you can click to view a list of children that make up the displayed figure.
The other charts in the pupil characteristics section will tell you how many pupils are not matched to a school census record or a prior attainment record.
We will attempt to match each child in your CLA cohort to a school census record, this match is done using their UPN, DOB, and Gender.
If we cannot match a record for a child, they will be included in the charts in this section and in the exports.
Please note that if you would like to see pupils who are of school age only, you can use the phase filter to narrow your cohort to those children.
We will attempt to match each child in your CLA cohort to a prior attainment record, this match is done using their UPN, DOB, Gender and their NC Year.
A child's NC Year will determine what prior attainment we expect them to have, if they have no NC Year as they are not matched to census, we will infer their NC Year from their date of birth.
The following will detail what prior attainment we would expect for a child given their NC Year, all children but those in NC Year 2 will be in one prior attainment group only.
EYFSP - a child who is NC Year 1 or NC Year 2
Y1 Phonics - a child who is NC Year 2
KS1 - a child in NC Years 3-6
KS2 - a child in NC Years 7-11
KS4 - a child in NC Years 12 and above (this will include those who are no longer of school age).
