School roll projections
We publish school roll projections for primary and secondary schools in December each year. These show how many children we predict will be at a school in the future. We use these as a strategic guide.
We base our projections on
- birth rates
- housing developments
- catchment population trends.
The projections suggest when certain schools will be over capacity.
Future projections may vary due to changes in
- patterns of attendance
- the housing and construction industries
- education policy.
