Post 16 Census issues

By 24th September 2020No Comments

We would like to bring to your attention to three problems within SIMS relating to the Post 16 Census and advise you of Capita’s solutions.


1. A problem in the Prior Attainment screen where the Maths Highest Grade is not populating correctly. SIMS Summer 2020 – Consolidated Workstation Patch 1 is now available to fix this issue and this will be released to all Secondary Schools today.

2. A problem with the Post 16 Programme of Study Screen where the Planned End Date is not being added correctly to the new overall Programme Aim this will cause errors including 2905.  Capita are finalising Patch No 26043 to resolve this issue and we are awaiting its release.  As soon as this becomes available, we will release this to all Secondary Schools.

3. The DfE have advised that Error 1638 in the Post 16 Census can be safely ignored, however Fileset 1605, when available, is expected to remove this from SIMS.
