Dear Department for Education,

The excel spreadsheet provided will not download properly and just produces a load of numbers. Would it be possible to send it directly to my email rather than through the portal

Dear Department for Education,

You have kndly supplied me with a list of schools in England with addresses, head teacher, emails and telephone numbers and I wondered if you could expand on this information by providing me with the number of pupils

Yours faithfully,

Ian Cotgrave

Department for Education

Ian

The pupil numbers information is taken from the School Census collection
and EduBase is updated around the October time each year, once the data
has been finalised.

The data you received a while ago would only contain pupil numbers from
the 2011 School Census and due to the number of schools on your list
that have opened or closed (become Academies for instance) would mean a
substantial amount of blanks.

For the most up to date information it would make more sense if you came
back to us in early november for another extract, but again there will
be a lot of gaps, due to new Academies since the data was collected in
2012
