Early Years Data Return

The Local Authority require you to provide some information about the children who are currently attending your setting.

This will allow them to effectively plan support for Early Years, as well as respond to a DfE request for weekly information.

A from has been sent to settings via the Children's Services Portal (CSP) - you should have received an email notification from the CSP (stating that you have received a WCC Secure Document)


Download the data form

Alternatively please download and complete the Early Years data collection form


Returning the form

Please return this form within the next 24 hours relating to the week commencing 30th March, and then again on Friday for this week’s data. 

The form should be completed on a weekly basis (changing the date at the top of the form each week) and we would then ask that you to return every Friday morning, until further notice.

If you are closed, we request that you complete this form once. You will not need to complete it again, although you may be contacted by a member of the Early Years Team to discuss any queries that are raised from your data return.


It will need to be uploaded securely onto the Children’s Services Portal (CSP) to the “Coronavirus – Early Years” team.

If you have any issues logging onto the Children Services Portal, please contact the System's Support Team on 01905 844954.
