The supporting documentation for CTF 12 was updated in January 2013 to give details of the data items required to be provided in a partial CTF for obtaining ULNs from the Learning Records Service (LRS) via s2s. These data items are:
The LRS use a pupil’s postcode to check whether a ULN has previously been issued to a pupil and, if a postcode is not included in the CTF, the LRS will reject the CTF file with a return code of RC10 – Null Values. The data items listed above must be included to enable the CTF to be accepted by both s2s and LRS.
