You do not need to delete pupils from the system if they have not been measured, for whatever reason. You can leave these records in the system and it will automatically calculate the total number of non-measured children for the different reasons for non-measurement. The LA edited pupil count will not auto-update in any instances where a non-measurement reason code has been applied to a record so please ensure you adjust your pupil counts if any children are not eligible for measurement.
Children considered not eligible for measurement are those who are no longer at school, and those who are not able to be measured due to physical or cognitive impairment. In these cases, decrease the LA edited pupil count for that school by the appropriate amount and if you have left the unmeasured record in place, enter the appropriate non-measurement reason.
