To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many and what percentage of pupils at pupil referral units were issued with a national record of achievement in each year between 1997 and 2006, broken down by local authority.
The information requested is not collected centrally.
Both the national record of achievement (NRA) and its successor, Progress File, were made available on a voluntary basis. While over 70 per cent. of secondary schools and many colleges ordered Progress File materials, our distribution records do not distinguish pupil referral units from other educational establishments.
