DfE new education statistics launched.

DfE new education statistics launched.

There is a total of 8.82 million pupils in all schools in England. This is an increase of 84,700 pupils (1.0%) since 2018. The total number of pupils has grown every year since 2009 and there are now 727,000 more pupils in schools than at that point.

By school type, the latest data shows:

 The number of pupils in

state-funded primary schools rose – as it has since 2009 – although at a slower rate than in recent years. There are 10,800 more pupils than in 2018.

 The number of pupils in

state-funded secondary schools rose for the fifth year in a row, and in 2019 had a much greater increase in population than primary schools. The increased number of primary pupils since 2010 have started to move into secondary schools so, as can be seen in the national pupil projections, we expect to see the number of secondary pupils continue to increase in the coming years.

 The number of pupils in

special schools has been increasing since 2006.
