Fields required from institutions in All fields
School direct lead school
return to field list
This field collects the lead school for School Direct trainees
Details of ITT placements are not submitted in the HESA ITT return. School Direct placements therefore need to be submitted to the DfE on the HEI DMS.
This field should contain a Unique Reference Number (URN), as shown on Get information about schools website.
All School Direct trainees should be associated with a lead school.
In some cases, for example where students are self-funded, they may not be associated with a lead school. In these cases, you must return 'Not applicable/not available’.
Where the lead school does not have a URN, the below generic codes should be used:
900000 Establishment outside England and Wales
900010 Not applicable/not available
