HC Deb 03 November 1987 vol 121 c634W
61. Mr. Bowis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps his Department takes to monitor examination results in the schools of the Inner London education authority; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dunn

The Department's current source of information on the examination achievements of pupils in English schools is the annual school leavers survey which includes, for a 10 per cent. sample of pupils, details of their CSE and GCE achievements.

Information from this survey is published in the Department's statistical bulletins and, more extensively, in "Statistics of Education Volume 2 (School Leavers CSE and GCE)", copies of which are available in the Library.
