As a result of the investment and reorganisation of the school estate, the proportion of schools in good or satisfactory condition has increased from 61 per cent in April 2007 to 82 per cent in April 2012. Taking into account the different number of pupils in each school, this has resulted in the number of pupils in good or satisfactory condition schools increasing from 61 per cent in April 2007 to 84 per cent in April 2012.

(1) See background notes 3.15 for more information on the condition ratings.

(2) This comes from the number of pupils on the school roll in the Pupil Census returns for the previous September, e.g. September 2011 for the April 2012 figures. So schools which opened after September but before April will not have any pupils recorded for that academic year.
