Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many pupils attended schools which were taken into special measures for the first time in each year since 1997. 
Your recent parliamentary question has been passed to me, as Her Majesty's Chief Inspector, for reply.
Table A shows the number of schools placed in special measures for the first time in each academic year since 1997/98, and the number of pupils attending these schools in that year, according to the Department for Children, Schools and Families' School Census, taken in January of each year. Schools for which Schools Census data are not available have been excluded from the analysis.

|Academic year||Number of schools placed in special measures for the first time||Number of pupils in schools placed in special measures for the first time|
