DfE Statistical Releases

DfE’s school offers statistical release shows secondary school applications continue to rise and are now the highest since 2008 at 548,006, a rise of 2.8%.

Primary applications have also risen but at a slower rate (0.8%) which indicates the drop in birth rate since 2013 may be starting to level out the demand for school places.

The SEN release shows that the combined number of statements and EHCs has also increased with the majority (43%) being for 11 to 15 year olds.
