Footnotes

  1. Autumn-born: September to December. Spring-born: January to March. Summer-born: April to August. In previous publications, children born in April were classified as spring-born. In the 2022/23 release, children born in April are now classified as summer-born to align with other departmental outputs. Data for 2021/22 has been revised to reflect this change. 
  2. The 'Unclassified' first language category describes cases where a child's first language could not be determined. These children are included in the 'Total' numbers.
  3. The 'Unclassified' SEN provision category describes cases where SEN provision could not be determined. These children are included in the 'Total' numbers.
  4. The 'Unclassified' ethnic group category describes cases where a child's ethnicity was refused or not obtained. These children are included in the 'Total' numbers.
  5. In previous publications, the category ‘Not known to be eligible for free school meals’ included both those not eligible for free school meals and those not known to be eligible for free school meals (i.e. children who did not appear in the school census). In this 2022/23 release, as a methodological improvement, the categories have been split out and are now ‘Eligible for free school meals’, ‘Not eligible for free school meals’ and ‘Unclassified’ (i.e. children who did not appear in the schools census). Data for 2021/22 has been revised to reflect this change.
