This Statistical First Release (SFR) is based upon information collected in the 2007 School Census. It reports provisional findings for the number of pupils by age, gender, free school meal eligibility, ethnicity, first language and SEN (special education needs) together with a range of class size information. Provisional figures sourced from SEN2 survey on the education arrangements, assessment and placement of children issued with a statement of SEN for the first time during the calendar year 2006 are also given in this publication. For the first time, the SFR will present information on Gifted and Talented pupils. In addition, the presentation of infant class sizes will be revised to provide information on 'excepted' classes. This is an annual SFR, last published on 27 April 2006.
