Figure 5 shows that Hackney has a slightly higher proportion of pupils with behavioural, emotional or social support needs than London or England, and is similar to most of its ‘statistical peers’.C

Figure 6 shows that while there has been a slight decline in this figure for both London and England between 2013 and 2014, this was not reflected in Hackney’s figures.

Figure 5 also shows that the City of London has a much lower proportion of pupils with behavioural, emotional or social support needs than London or England. Please note however that this figure is based on where the pupil attends school; the City of London has only one maintained school (Sir John Cass’s Foundation Primary School) and only about a third of the pupils who attend the school are City residents.

In addition, there are only a small number of pupils contributing to this figure, and so caution must be taken when drawing conclusions from this result.

Figure 6 shows that while there has been a slight decline in this figure for both London and England between 2013 and 2014, this was not reflected in the City of London’s figures.
