This release provides data collected via the ‘School placements for children from outside of the UK’ survey from local authorities in England.
It provides data on the number of children from outside of the UK who have applied for a school place split by the following countries of origin:
- Afghanistan (arrivals via Afghanistan Relocation and Assistance Policy or Afghanistan Citizens Resettlement Scheme)
- Ukraine (arrivals via the Family Scheme or Homes for Ukraine)
- Hong Kong (arrivals via the Hong Kong British Nationals (Overseas) welcome programme)
The data relates to applications and offers made since the start of the 2021/22 academic year, with the latest release covering the period 1 September 2021 to 27 September 2022. Data is also included on how many offers have been made within 15 days.
This data has been collected and analysed quickly to inform the Department for Education's response to the resettlement of families from Afghanistan, Hong Kong and Ukraine. The DfE recognises the operational importance of publishing this data in a timely manner and so is publishing this it as management information.
The data is collected from local authorities on a voluntary basis. In the latest return, the response rate was 51%. Imputations to adjust for non-response have been made to produce national and regional estimates. All local authority data is as reported. For further information see ‘Background’ and ‘Methodology’.
The data is collected from local authorities in England on a voluntary basis. In the latest return, the response rate was 51%. Imputations to adjust for non-response have been made to produce national and regional estimates. All local authority figures are as reported, with nil returns presented as an ‘x’. In recognition of the uncertainty of these adjustments, all national and regional figures have been rounded to the nearest 100. Any figure less than 50 has been presented as ‘low’. Some local authorities provided partial data, therefore, the sum of breakdowns (for example, primary plus secondary) may not equal totals within the local authority level data.
