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
