Dear Michael Kenworthy 

Thank you for your request for information received on 26 October 2016. You requested:

“Please can you provide a spreadsheet with establishment names and addresses (including post codes) for the following:
- Primary Schools (including academies and indepedent schools)
- Pupil Referral Units
- Nurseries (if possible broken down in to private/voluntary, maintained, independent)

- Any other early years/ primary establishments

Can you please advise if there is likely to be any duplicates in these records as we are trying to gain an understanding of the number of unique establishments across the country.”

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

A csv file containing data from EduBase as at 07 November 2016 is enclosed. The file contains a standard extract of all educational establishments in England, primary schools can be identified in the field titled “Phase of Education”. Pupil referral Uinits can be identified in the field titled “Type of Establishment.

Also attached is a list of Children’s Centres.

Further information on the terms used within this extract can be found in the EduBase glossary: http://www.education.gov.uk/edubase/glos...

A file containing a list of private, voluntary and independent providers in England (excluding childminders) as at January 2016 is attached.

The department’s list of early years providers in England is populated by two sources:

1. Edubase for LA maintained nurseries
2. The Early Years Census (EYC) for information on private, voluntary and independent (PVI) providers.
(EYC - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/early-years-...).

The department does not hold a list of all PVI providers registered in England, only those which receive funding in relation to the funded early education entitlement.

The location data provided includes the local authority and the establishment’s postcode. The department does not collect the establishment’s full postal address.
