This release provides data collected via the ‘School placements for children from outside of the UK’ survey from local authorities.
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, and British Nationals)
- Ukraine (arrivals via the Family Scheme or Homes for Ukraine)
- Hong Kong (arrivals via the Hong Kong British Nationals (Overseas) welcome programme)
Data was also asked on applications from ‘All other countries outside of the UK’, however, because many local authorities have reported not currently holding this information, it is not including in this publication.
Data is also included on the number of offers made within 15 days of application. There are many reasons why some children have not been offered a place and why some applications may take longer than 15 days to process, including where the Fair Access Protocol is used.
