The Register of Educational Establishments (REE) and EduBase datasets contain records on over 53,000 schools in England (predominately), the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, plus a small number of schools in overseas countries. The schools include nursery schools, playgroups, pre-schools, primary, middle and secondary schools (LEA-maintained and independent), sixth form colleges, special schools and pupil referral units. Basic information is provided on each school: e.g. name of the school; address and contact details; the school type; school's denomination; numbers, sex and ages of pupils; types of special needs catered for; head teacher or other contact, etc. The database includes schools' establishment numbers, which together with schools' LEA numbers can provide a key to identifying schools in the Schools' Census datasets.
The data in this dataset series can be divided into four main categories:
- Data on educational bodies.
- Data on Training and Enterprise Councils (TECs) and Local Enterprise Companies (LECs).
- Data on the database itself and modifications to the database.
- Data relating to pro forma reports.
Where the REE held records of early years, primary, secondary, independent and further education establishments, the EduBase system also held details on higher education establishments.
The copy of EduBase holds no data on its own modifications, or data relating to reports.
The datasets in this series are available to download. Links to individual datasets can be found at piece level.
