SCAP (School Capacity Survey)
Education Funding Agency’s SCAP Guidance states:
“You should hold up-to-date net capacity assessments for all LA maintained, VA, VC and foundation schools, as the assessments are a statutory requirement for the School Capacity Collection.”
The school capacity survey is an annual statutory collection of school-level data from the DfE on school capacity and local authority pupil forecasts.
The survey collects information from:
- maintained community, foundation and voluntary primary or secondary schools
- academies (including free schools, university technical colleges and studio schools)
- city technology colleges
