In special schools 4,315 In boarding homes 714 In special classes and units associated with ordinary schools 1,692 In independent schools 2,592 Total 9,313
Of the remaining 2,104 some were receiving education elsewhere than in school, e.g. in hospital or at home, and some were in ordinary schools whilst awaiting vacancies in special schools.
§ Mr. Newens
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) which education authorities in England and Wales provide facilities for the education of maladjusted children at the secondary stage;
(2) which education authorities in England and Wales provide facilities for the education of maladjusted children at the primary stage.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
The local education authoritites listed below maintain special schools, boarding homes or hostels, or day classes or units for maladjusted pupils. Since many special schools cover a range which includes primary and secondary age children it is not possible to give separate details for primary and secondary stages. Authorities without their own maintained facilities may place maladjusted pupils in schools provided by other authorities, in non-maintained schools run by voluntary bodies or in independent schools.
