School census data

Did you know that Calderdale has 100 schools, serving over 35000 pupils?

Analysis of our pupil population is available within the Schools datasets, which have recently been updated with data from the October 2018 school census. Topics include how many of these pupils have special educational needs, take free school meals or speak English as an additional language. Historical data going back to 2015 is also available.

The Council and the DfE use this data to ensure that no child misses out on the education they deserve. This includes allocating funds where they are needed, such as projecting future demands for school places and planning for new school buildings.
