Unique Learner Numbers

What is a Unique Learner Number (ULN)? 

When a student reaches Year 9 they are issued with a Unique Learner Number (ULN) which is used to register and make exam entries with awarding bodies. The ULN is used by the education sector to share personal learning records and ensure that the correct information is recorded in the correct learning record. More information can be found here: (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-access-your-personal-learning-record)  

The ULN allows the Personal Learning Record (PLR) to be populated with verified achievements as Learners move through their lifelong educational journey. Using the ULN will help learners by: speeding up HE and FE applications and admissions, as well as making it possible for individuals to demonstrate qualifications to a potential employer.  

What is a Personal Learning Record (PLR)? 

The personal learning record (PLR) allows individual learners access to their past and current achievement records.  

It can also allow an individual learner to share their PLR with a careers advisor when taking advice on what to do in future.  

The PLR can be obtained by filling in an access request form (“My personal learning record form” on the landing page for the previous link above). 

This Privacy Notice explains how a student’s data will be shared:- 

Privacy Notice for: pupils, students, learners and trainees 

The information you supply is used by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, an executive agency of the Department for Education (DfE), to issue you with a Unique Learner Number (ULN) and to create your Personal Learning Record, as part of the functions of the DfE. For more information about how your information is processed, and to access your Personal Learning Record, please refer to: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/lrs-privacy-notices.

If you don’t get the results you expected


Examination Certificates

Certificates will be handed to students between 4-5pm on Thursday 8th December for Year 11 Leavers. Any students who sit examinations early, will receive their certificates at their own Year 11 evening, in the year that they leave secondary education.

Please contact school as soon as possible to inform whether you will be attending or not.

If you cannot attend the event to collect your certificates

For students who cannot collect their own certificates, they can designate someone else to collect them using the application form below. The designated person MUST bring photographic proof of identification for themselves along with them.

What happens if I do not collect my certificates?

Please be aware that certificates only need to be retained by the school for 12-months before they are securely destroyed. Therefore it is important that you collect your certificates as soon as possible, by arrangement with the exams office, to ensure that you do not have to pay for expensive replacements. Ex-students who believe they may have certificates held by the school should email exams@sc.coastandvale.academy requesting advice on whether their certificates are available, giving the following information:

  • Full Legal Name at the time the exams were taken
  • Date of Birth
  • Year of leaving Scalby

Where certificates are held by the school and you are unable to collect them (by appointment) in person, it is possible to make alternative arrangements, as long as these are received in writing in advance of your request. The Certificates Authority can be downloaded, filled in and posted back prior to a third party making an appointment with the Exams Office.

Replacement certificates

Where certificates are no longer held by the school, it is possible to obtain replacements. Details of how to obtain replacements are available from http://ofqual.gov.uk/help-and-advice/getting-a-replacement-certificate/. There is a charge per certificate for obtaining replacements.
