Holding answer received on 15 January 2015

The categorisation of the ethnicity of school children is a matter for the Secretary of State for Education.

Home Office Ministers have regular meetings with Ministerial colleagues and others as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of all such meetings.
