School places sufficiency survey data: academic year 2019 to 2020


This release provides transparency data from the voluntary one-off survey on school places, sent to local authorities in England, in September 2020. Included in this release are:

  • school level capacity data for academic year 2019 to 2020 for a small number of state-funded primary and secondary schools in England
  • planned additional places in mainstream schools that relied on ongoing building work, mainly for academic year 2021 to 2022, for those local authorities that responded
