With the exclusion of the above types of schools, this article has been brought in agreement with the report ‘Grenzen aan kleine scholen’ (Size limits for small schools) released in February 2013 by the Advisory Council for Education (Onderwijsraad). The Council recommends to discontinue financial support as from 2019 to small primary schools, i.e. schools with an enrolment of fewer than 100 pupils.
To facilitate reading, ‘schools’ are sometimes referred to as ‘school establishments’. Mixing these terms up has no effect, because nearly all primary schools are situated on only one location.
