Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 3 October 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what the average number of schools not inspected has been in each local authority area in each of the last 10 years.

Answered by: John Swinney 25 October 2017

The figures provided are the numbers of schools not inspected in each local authority in each of the last 10 years, based on the Scottish Government list of schools as at September of the relevant inspection year, broken down by local authority for publicly funded and independent schools separately.

The following figures have been calculated only on the basis of inspections carried out in a single academic year. The figures are not cumulative.
