Dear Mr Dalrymple ,
Thank you for your email dated 27 August 2013 about Edubase.
You requested:

“Is it possible to provide me with an up to date list of all schools (primary and secondary)
in England with the headteacher contact, postal address and email address? Is it also
possible to receive this in Excel format?”

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and a  copy of the
information as held by the Department as at 3rd September 2013 is attached. 

I have prepared for you on an Excel spreadsheet –

A standard extract of all Educational establishments (including, LA Maintained, Independent,
Academies, CTCs, Free Schools, Studio Schools Further Education and Higher Education) in
England with addresses, Head Teacher details, school email addresses and telephone number
where available.

The Department does not hold individual Head Teacher or school staff email information, and
for this reason we have supplied you with the school email address where possible.

The extract can be sorted to your own requirements by Phase of Education (primary, secondary
etc.) or Type of Establishment (academy, free school, community school, etc.). Further
information on these and other terms used within this extract can be found in the EduBase
glossary:  [1]

As part of the data extract we have included the school Unique Reference Number (URN) so
that if you require further information on any particular school record please go to
[2] where you will be able to view more information.

If you have any further issues or queries please do not hesitate to contact the EduBase
helpdesk using the feedback form: [3]

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.  Your correspondence has been allocated
reference number 2013/0053144. If you need to respond to us, please visit:
