To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will publish in one place on gov.uk where each school is located, each school's unique reference number and local authority establishment number, the URL for each such school's page on her Department's school and college performance tables website, the URL for each such page on Ofsted's Inspection Report website, the name of the company which has an academy funding agreement, and the Companies House registration number of each of those companies.

Most of this information is already available in the one place. Since 2011, as part of the government’s transparency agenda, the performance website expanded greatly. The location of each school and its unique reference number are shown on each school’s entry on the School Performance Tables website. This page also provides PDF versions of academy funding agreements, annual reports and financial statements which contain the name of the company with whom the Secretary of State has a funding agreement and its Companies House registration number. The Ofsted inspection reports website provides a direct link to each school’s performance tables entry under ‘further links’.

We regularly review the content and functionality of our website and will consider whether it would be helpful to add each school’s local authority establishment number to the website.
