School Estates Core Facts


Information is collected on the extent, condition and sufficiency of the school estate. Information is used at both national and local level to inform targets, spending decisions, support monitoring and evaluation of progress over time and support assessments of value for money. The results are included in the December education statistics compendia. The current and previous publications can be found here.


2018 Survey

Data submissions for this collection are made online via ProcXed. Logins exist for our main ScotXed and School Estates contacts. A user guide for ProcXed and a link to the login page can be found here.

Your prepopulated template is sent directly to you. There are no changes to the collection from 2017.  The 2016 specification was updated in 2017 with an additional validation rule to prevent the duplication of records within returns.

If you have any difficulties, feedback or questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch, in the first instance by emailing scotxed@gov.scot
