To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what his most recent estimate is of the proportion of pupils entitled to free school meals in (a) all secondary schools, (b) the top performing 100 secondary schools and (c) the bottom performing 100 secondary schools. (201053)

I refer the hon. Member to the following link:

Further information can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
