This is the first Statistical Release providing national projections for the number of pupils in schools by type of school and age group. Findings presented in this release use the latest available mid-2008 based population projections from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) with trends in pupil numbers derived from data collected via the School Census (January 2009).
