UIN 28670, tabled on 25 February 2016

Answered on

9 March 2016

Since August 2012 the Department for Education has issued: 997 publications[1] and 121 consultation exercises. Since 2012 a digital-by-default policy has applied to departmental publications and consultations. These are available on GOV.UK.

The department no longer uses the term circulars as a publication type. The department issues emails to schools and local authorities periodically to draw their attention to information and guidance that has been published on GOV.UK. 321 such email newsletters were issued in the period in question. These are referenced by the date issued and audience, and so there is no list of titles available.

  • Attachment A shows the titles of DfE publications since August 2012.

  • Attachment B shows the titles of DfE consultations carried out since August 2012.
