To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what estimate he has made of the number and proportion of secondary schools offering an extended school service (a) at least once a week and (b) more than once a week in each year for which figures are available.
We expect all schools to be providing access to the full core offer of extended services by 2010. Currently there are 2,004 secondary schools providing the full core offer. All of these will be offering extended services more than once a week. There are many other schools which are already providing access to parts of the core offer that are not yet included in these figures.
