The Property Data Survey Programme, which carried out high-level condition surveys of the school estate in England, completed its last survey in July 2014. To ensure that the data is sufficiently robust before it is put to any further use, I asked officials to share the data that we had gathered with schools and responsible bodies and rectify any significant variances in the dataset.

The deadline for feedback from schools and responsible bodies has recently passed and officials are considering where the survey information needs to be updated. Once this is completed, the Department will give further consideration to the future publication of the data.
