The details of all schools (and other educational establishments) are held by the ScotXed Unit on our Scottish Educational Establishment Database. It is essential that this database is correct and up-to-date, as the information it holds underpins many areas of work on education in Scotland, such as the annual School/Pupil and Staff censuses.
To ensure that ScotXed and local authorities have access to the same information about school establishments on a timely basis, we operate a rolling collection, which allows you to update your establishments data at any point in the year using ProcXed. There remains an annual deadline by which time your local authority must confirm that the data reflects the known status of your schools for the forthcoming academic year. This year the deadline is Friday 27th July 2018. Please refer to the Guidance Notes available via the link below.
After the annual submission of data, we will re-open the form allowing you to make any updates in the course of the year as they arise.
The rolling collection form will only allow you to update information about schools and their departments (e.g. primary, secondary, special, pre-school). Requests for SEED codes for other types of centre (e.g. Educational Maintenance Allowance recording, nursery school, virtual centre, etc.) should be directed to ScotXed via the mailbox: email@example.com
