Schools: Closures

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many school days have been lost as a result of schools having to close temporarily during term-time in each year since 1997; what information his Department collects on the reasons for such closures; and if he will make a statement. (196426)

The Department does not collect this information, and there is no requirement for schools to notify us when they close temporarily during term-time.
