iCoCo Foundation, SchoolDash and The Challenge Study: Understanding School Segregation in England 2011 to 2016

There has been growing concern about school segregation over the last 15 years. Taking its definition of segregation from the Casey review, this April 2017 study (pdf) found:

  • InĀ 2016, 26% of primary schools and 40.6% of secondary schools were either ethnically segregated or potentially contributing to segregation in England
  • In 2016, 29.6% of primary schools and 27.6% of secondary schools were segregated by socio-economic status, using FSM-eligibility as a proxy.
