Volume 479: debated on Monday 1 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many school federations took place in each year since 2005; and how many federations are planned. (219563)

Schools are not currently required to notify the Department when establishing or joining a federation so the Department does not keep a systematic record of this activity. As more schools become aware of the benefits of federation we expect numbers to grow over the coming years.
