Oxfordshire schools - pupil ethnicity and first language 2021
The charts below show the recorded ethnicities and first language (English/Other) of Primary and Secondary (national curriculum years 1-11) pupils who attend Oxfordshire schools, split by the District in which they live. The underlying data comes from the January 2021 School Census*.
Some key themes:
- Across all of Oxfordshire's districts, Oxford has the highest proportion of ethnic minority pupils and pupils whose first language isn't English.
- All districts aside from West Oxfordshire have a higher proportion of ethnic minority pupils and pupils whose first language isn't English in Primary year groups (years 1-6) than in Secondary year groups (years 7-11).
*The School Census is a regular data collection exercise in which state-funded schools submit a range of information to the Department of Education. This information includes general pupil characteristics, such as gender, free school meal eligibility, special needs, ethnicity, and language.
