Teachers: Documents

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many documents were sent from his Department to head teachers of (a) primary and (b) secondary schools either in hard copy or via e-mail since 18 December 2007. (196572)

It is departmental policy not to send documents to schools either in hard copy or via e-mail. In communications to schools via e-mail we provide links to documents that can be downloaded.

We send a regular fortnightly e-mail to schools. There have been seven sent since 18 December 2007. On occasion it is necessary to send a bespoke e-mail containing an item of significant importance (or to schools falling within a particular category e.g. admission authorities). Four have been sent since 18 December 2007.
