The current school system has delivered places where they are needed, on time, to ensure that every child has a school place, with 735,000 new school places created between 2010 and 2016.

39 schools have been opened and then closed since 2010. These are listed in the attached table. The Department does not record the number of pupils on a school roll at the time of closing.
