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

 

An Excel spreadsheet containing the requested information requested is
enclosed. The spreadsheet contains the local authority number,
establishment number, establishment name, establishment type,
establishment phase, MIS supplier software code and number of pupils for
each school. It is not possible to provide the software supplier name as
this information is not collected. However, the software supplier code we
have included contains the software supplier name in the majority of
cases. 

 

I have provided data from the most recent complete census, which is the
autumn school census 2017.

 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you should
make a complaint to the Department by writing to me within two calendar
months of the date of this letter.  Your complaint will be considered by
an independent review panel, who were not involved in the original
consideration of your request. 

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint to the
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
