A table detailing the name and address of each special needs school in (a) Essex and (b) each London borough; together with the name of the head teacher; the number of pupils; the opening date; and when each was last inspected by Ofsted has been placed in the Commons Library.
The figures given in the table include special schools maintained by local authorities together with non-maintained special schools and independent special schools. Ofsted have included the inspection type for the hon. Member’s information. It is regretted that data on school opening dates are not available to the Department prior to 1997.
