Department for Education

A ministerial department, also called DfE

The Department for Education was formed on 12 May 2010 and is responsible for education and children's services. It replaces the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).
If you are seeking contact information for schools please see requests which have already been made on this subject before submitting your own (example), consider our policy on redacting email addresses from responses, and take a look at the https://get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/ website.

Requests for information held by Regional Schools Commissioners, who are responsible for making decisions about academies and free schools, can be made to the Department for Education.
