Curriculum for Excellence 3rd level or better: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/202000017413
Date received: 21 Feb 2020
Date responded: 4 Mar 2020
Information requested

A spreadsheet containing data on CfE 3rd level or better by education establishment.
You also asked some other questions which will be addressed in this response.


As the education team are currently migrating to a new website it is not yet possible to give you a link for exactly where the data will be published on March 31st. If you send an email to on March 31st they will be able to tell you where the latest school contact list has been published. In the meantime I have attached a spreadsheet which contains changes to school contact information as at the end of January 2020, which I hope you will find helpful.
I enclose a copy of the information you requested on CfE 3rd level or better by education establishment in the format you asked for.

The data on coordinates is produced by the GIS team in Scottish Government and will be updated some time after the school contacts list is published on March 31st. I have attached a spreadsheet the team in GIS provided me based on the 2018 edition of the school contact list and adds eastings, northings and UPRN to the school address. The following link explains this process in more detail, and provides the data in other formats:;jsessionid=FF80C8791D3F9F148C70B14BF3B31882#/88c8-40ef-bbf2-2989210b7167
If anything relating to this part of your request is unclear, you can contact the GIS team directly, here:
