Rob Marris – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Education

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Rob Marris on 2016-04-08.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many local authority schools have been found not to have kept records of eligibility for free school meals in each of the last three years.

Mr Sam Gyimah

It is a statutory requirement for all schools to return free school meals eligibility data via the school census and the Department has a process for checking that returns are accurate.
