Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 21 November 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


How many young people in Jersey were, are, predicted to be in full time primary education (reception to year 6) in all States funded schools in:

a) Sept 2018? 

b) Sept 2023? 

c) Sept 2028? 

d) Sept 2033?


The Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 gives a right to request information that is held in recorded form, unless exempt. The September 2028 and September 2033 aspect of the request poses a question regarding future predications rather than seeking information held in recorded form. Therefore Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.

Please see attached breakdown of the number of children who were in full time primary education (Reception to Year 6) in all Government of Jersey schools in September 2018 and September 2023:
