Jim Knight: School Building Investment Data was published by the Department in May 2007 based on information supplied by local authorities. This showed that between 1997-8 and 2006-7, 231 new additional schools were built, and 853 were rebuilt. The information also showed that between 1992 and 1997, 85 new additional schools were built, and 216 were rebuilt. The department does not hold information on the number of schools built between 1987 and 1992. A copy of the publication is held in the parliamentary Library.
The Department does not hold data on average expenditure on school buildings. Levels of investment are decided locally and authorities may add funding from other sources to the schools capital allocations they receive from Government.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the cost of the key stage (a) 1, (b) 2 and (c) 3 tests was in each year since 1997-98; and if he will make a statement.

The QCA was formed in October 1997, so no full year figures are available for 1997/98. In addition, QCAs records from 1998 onwards do not support the split of information between the various key stages.
Tom Brake: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children due to enter their first year of primary school did not have a school place by 1 September in the relevant year in each London borough in each year since 1997. 
Jim Knight: The Department does not collect data on primary school offers or on the number of unplaced children. Local authorities are under a duty to make sure that every child of compulsory school age has a suitable school place.
John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what assessment he has made of the level of public access to new sports facilities funded by the sale of playing fields at Portland School, Worksop. 
Sarah McCarthy-Fry: In its application to dispose of the surplus playing field land at the school, Nottinghamshire county council indicated that the new sports facilities were to be designed to facilitate out-of-school and extended school activities and would greatly enhance community participation in sport. The community use of the new facilities was to be managed by the private finance initiative provider in conjunction with the local district council.
John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) which schools in Nottinghamshire have been proposed for either new building or significant rebuilding through the Building Schools for the Future programme in (a) 2010, (b) 2011, (c) 2012, (d) 2013 and (e) 2014; 
Nottinghamshire local authority entered the Building Schools for the Future programme in Wave 6 and is currently developing a strategy for educational
transformation for the first phase of schools in Newark, parts of Mansfield and Market Warsop. Expected completion dates for individual schools are not agreed until the Outline Business Case is submitted by the authority to the Department for Children, Schools and Families. Serlby Park School is expected to be included in a later phase of the authority's project.
Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) what percentage of (a) secondary and (b) primary schools are offering at least four hours of sport a week, broken down by local authority; 
Sarah McCarthy-Fry: The annual School Sport Survey was introduced in 2003/04 and collects data from schools in school sport partnerships relating to the percentage of pupils participating in at least two hours high quality PE and school sport in a typical week. The survey does not collect data relating to the proportion of pupils participating in four or more hours of sport a week. All maintained schools in England have been in School Sport Partnerships since September 2006.
The following table sets out the 2006/07 School Sport Survey results of the percentage of pupils in each local authority area taking part in at least two hours of high quality PE and school sport in a typical week. Further analysis between primary and secondary schools could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
