CESEW Patch required to be applied to SIMS database 

Patch 24438 to correct mistakes related to enrolment status and to the classification of Polish ethnicity

This patch provides the following improvements.

  1. Ensures that pupil enrolments status on census reference date is obtained from the history of changes rather than enrolment status as displayed for the current date.  This can be regarded as a relatively minor bug fix, as the old and new methods are unlikely to yield a different result.
  2. Ensures that pupils with an ethnicity of Polish are counted as ‘White Other’ rather than ‘Not Known’.  This is a more significant bug fix, as there are many pupils with an ethnicity of Polish attending Catholic schools

This patch will be applied to all catholic schools prior to the 17th January 2019.
