9 Mar 2009 : Column 188W

Gifted Children: GCE A-Level

Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children registered as gifted and talented gained three or more A Grades at A Level in (a) 2005 and (b) the latest year for which figures are available. [260497]

Sarah McCarthy-Fry [holding answer 3 March 2009]: National data on gifted and talented pupils have only been collected since 2006. In that year 3,162 students aged 16 to 18 identified as gifted and talented in maintained schools achieved three or more A grades at A level. The corresponding figure for 2008 was 7,041. These figures do not include young people attending post-16 institutions, for which equivalent data are not available.

Nurseries: Closures

Mrs. Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what assessment he has made of the rate of closure of nurseries in the last six months; and if he will make a statement. [260633]

Beverley Hughes: During the period from 31 March 2008 to 31 August 2008 (the latest period for which figures are available) the number of Ofsted-registered full day care settings rose by 325 from 14,275 to 14,600. The number of places available in those settings increased by 13,100 from 622,500 to 635,600 over the same period.

Private Education

Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many independent special schools there were in each local authority area in each year since 1997. [259299]
