HL Deb 14 December 1992 vol 541 c25WA
Baroness David

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What statistical model was used to estimate that there will be 1,500 schools that are grant-maintained or have been approved for grant-maintained status by the end of the financial year 1993/94.

Baroness Blatch

The projection was based on term-on-term growth in the numbers of schools achieving incorporation, dating back to the beginning of grant-maintained status in September 1989. Since then secondary school numbers have increased by around a third each term and primary numbers by around a half.
