UK (Wales) Data

The EASIE data collection takes place every two years. Country data is added to this website as and when it becomes available. The default view is the most recent school year available. The data is presented in up to six tables, focusing on different aspects of inclusive education. Unless stated otherwise in the notes, the data displayed is from the selected school year.

Question ISCED 1 ISCED 2 Sources used Notes
1 How many school ages children are there at: 205,388 172,406 Office for National Statistics mid-year estimates of population for Wales: https://statswales.gov.wales/Catalogue/Population-and-Migration/Population/Estimates/NationalLevelPopulationEstimates-by-Year-Age-UKCountry For ISCED level 1, ages 6 to 11 are included; for ISCED level 2, ages 12 to 16 are included (ages in June 2014). Population estimates are given as at 30 June, with age as at last birthday. They may therefore not be consistent with a count as at 1 January.
2 How many pupils are enrolled in all formal educational settings in: 202,772 165,840 Annual School Census, 2014
3 How many pupils are out of any formal educational settings in: 97 987 Pupils Educated Other Than At School, 2014 For ISCED level 1, ages 5 to 10 are included; for ISCED level 2, ages 11 to 15 are included (ages as at 31 August of previous year). This includes pupils educated other than at school.
4 How many pupils are enrolled in mainstream formal educational settings with their non-disabled peers in: 199,395 160,148 Annual School Census, 2014 For ISCED level 1, ages 5 to 10 are included; for ISCED level 2, ages 11 to 15 are included (ages as at 31 August of previous year). This includes pupils in all local authority maintained mainstream schools. It excludes independent schools and special schools, as some independent schools are special schools – this information is not collected.
5 How many pupils are enrolled and educated in mainstream classes with their non-disabled peers for at least 80% of the time in: 120,619 M Annual School Census, 2014 There are many small schools in Wales where pupils of multiple ages are taught in the same class. It is not possible to calculate ISCED level 1 accurately as the pupils aged under 5 cannot be split out. The estimate for ISCED 1 is an undercount. No data is collected on the type of class for ISCED level 2.
