To establish a fuller basis of information, data from inspections and on attainment and exclusions were analysed for secondary schools with 10% or more Black Caribbean pupils. Based on 2000 data, there were 129 such schools, which between them cater for about 40% of the Black Caribbean pupil population. These 129 schools are referred to as the ‘survey schools’. The 47 schools that were able to respond are referred to as the ‘sample schools’.
