Population information for children of school age (and under)

Table of Contents

This page gives you information about the numbers of children (a) born in the Royal Borough and (b) currently living in the borough, by age.  Both datasets are plotted against the year in which the age group started, or will start, in Reception (the first year of school).

The births data comes from the Office of National Statistics.  The data about children currently living in the borough comes from the NHS, via the borough's Public Health Team.

The data is provided by geographical area:

  • Ascot.
  • Maidenhead.
  • Windsor (including Datchet and Wraysbury).

The analysis also provides the data at smaller geographical units within those areas.

The births data is from the 2000/01 academic year onwards, with the latest available (2018/19) data included.  This will next be updated in Summer 2021.  The data about children currently living in the borough, by age, is available for 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20.   The 2020/21 data will be available in Autumn 2021.  

The births data is an accurate guide to the number of children born each year, but does not capture changes to the population since, as families move in and out of the borough.  The data about children currently living in the borough is more up-to-date, but does rely on families informing their GP that they have moved, and on individual GP surgeries keeping their records up-to-date.

If you have any queries about the data, please contact us at schoolplaces@achievingforchildren.org.uk.
