The national School2School (S2S) register enables the secure transfer of a standard set of pupil details between publicly funded schools within Scotland. The system highlights instances of pupils who have left a school, but have not arrived at their expected onward destination. It also provides information on the reasons why pupils are transferring to or leaving a school.
Requesting a search of S2S
At any stage during a search for a child it is possible to contact CME(S) to conduct a search of the S2S register. CME(S) can identify if the missing child has enrolled at another publicly funded school in Scotland and will pass these details on to the party requesting the search.
CME(S) will need certain details (below) to query the S2S database. This should be submitted in a secure way, as per your Local Authorities data protection and transfering information guidance. Further information can be found on our Contact Us page.
Child’s details needed:
- Scottish Candidate Number (where appropriate)
- Forename and surname
- Date of birth
- Current school (if missing from a Scottish school)
- School Scottish Executive Education Department (SEED) code (if missing from a Scottish school)
