The School Level Annual School Census (SLASC) is a school level return collected from registered independent schools and general hospital schools on the third Thursday in January. The data collected from registered independent schools includes details of teaching and pupil numbers, courses of study, pupils with SEN and children looked after by a local authority. In addition, information is also collected on annual fees and accommodation, as well as details of new staff members and proprietors since the last census.

The SLASC data collection is a statutory requirement and is carried out using the Secretary of State's powers under The Education (Independent Educational Provision in England) (Provision of Information) Regulations 2010 (SI 2010/2919), made under the Education and Skills Act 2008.
