Statistics at DfE

The Department for Education's statistical publications use data collected on schools, children and young people.

We publish official statistics on education and children, in accordance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. You can access a range of commentary, tables and data from these pages.

Announcements

23 March 2015: On 3 June 2015 we plan to publish a statement of administrative sources for attainment data, setting out how the department collects, processes and quality assures the attainment data published in performance tables. We will also publish a summary of the latest user feedback from the performance tables website survey (2013 to 2014). These documents will be available on the performance tables website.

13 February 2015: We will no longer publish additional tables showing local authority estimates of education and work-based learning by 16- to 17-year-olds as part of the statistical first release Participation in education, training and employment, age 16 to 18. We publish alternative, timelier figures, based on local authority data, 3 times per year (December, March and June).

13 February 2015: In May 2015, we plan to publish data from the special educational needs SEN2 survey. This is earlier than in previous years to allow timelier information on the new reforms introduced in September 2014. A second statistical publication, containing SEN data reported in the school census, will continue to be published in July.
