To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many free schools are in temporary accommodation.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
26 May 2016
As at 23 May 2016, 110 free schools were in some form of temporary accommodation. Some of these schools will be open in temporary accommodation on their permanent site as part of a phased transition.
Opening free schools in temporary accommodation has ensured that we have been able to meet a need for places and support free school trusts to open much needed new schools at the earliest opportunity.
