As well as collecting information on the condition of school building we also started collecting information on their suitability from April 2010 onwards. Suitability is different from condition as it considers how well suited the school building and facilities are to pupils learning rather than what condition they are in.

Table 7.3: Suitability of all schools and the number of pupils on their school roll, April 2010 - April 2013(1)

(1) See background notes 3.19 for more information on the suitability 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 2012 for the April 2013 figures. So schools which opened after September but before April will not have any pupils recorded for that academic year.

(3) Figures for 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been corrected to take account of revised suitability information for 1 East Dunbartonshire school in 2010, 39 in 2011 and 1 in 2012 and so differ slightly from previously published figures.

The proportion of schools with a good or satisfactory suitability has increased from 74 per cent in April 2010 to 80 per cent in April 2013. Taking into account the different number of pupils in each school, this has resulted in the number of pupils in schools with a good or satisfactory suitability increasing from 76 per cent in April 2010 to 82 per cent in April 2013.
