Department should've published primary school stats claims MHK

Data assembled by parent

The education department should have published Manx primary school data itself.

The view of Garff MHK Daphne Caine, who's been speaking after the information was collated and put out by a parent and member of the Positive Action Group, David Watt.

He used Freedom of Information requests to get the statistics.

They include the level of 'good learning development', and how many pupils have English as another language.

Mrs Caine says the details are valuable and should have been made available by the department as a whole, rather than for individual schools upon request.
