Key Dates Statistics 2020

April 30th 2020 Statistical Return Part 1: Staffing.

There are 2 small additions to the Part 1 Staffing Stats for 2020/2021.

  • Separate reporting on Band 3 from Bands 1 and 2
  • Reporting on the percentage of WTE spent on LKS activity

There is an error message in the Spreadsheet relating to the change in Band 3 detail. The change has not been reflected  further down in the spreadsheet. You will see an error message occurs when you populate it. Our business intelligent unit changed the Spreadsheet for us and testing did not pick up the error. The business intelligent unit are not able to make any changes to the spreadsheet so the advice given is Please ignore the error message.

Statistical return 2019-2020 Part 2: finance and activity deferred until October 2020.

The Activity Log will be available on of after 1st April 2020.

This is to be completed with Part 2 stats.
