Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Department of Education (Northern Ireland),

Could you please provide the following;

1. The number of schools who have applied for exceptional closure days during the period 2010-2013. Please also detail the reasons given for the exceptional school closure.
2. The number of schools who have taken optional school closure days during the period 2010-2013. Please detail the number of optional days which were taken per school.
3. The number of schools who have taken "School Development Days" during the period 2010-2013. Please detail the number of these days which were taken per school.
4. Does the Department record the length of each school day to monitor how each school records and maintains the 'minimum hours under instruction' as detailed under circular 2013/09

I am mainly interested in Belfast Schools so would be happy for that data if it speeds up the request.

Yours faithfully,

Michael
