Local authorities have a statutory duty to ensure there are a sufficient number of school places for pupils and that places are planned effectively. In Hackney, this is managed by Hackney Education, the Council’s education service.
Hackney Education has implemented a School Place Planning (SPP) Group to monitor school rolls, school roll projections and the financial health of schools, taking steps, where appropriate, to implement school organisation changes across the borough in consultation with other council departments.

Hackney Education’s School Organisation Plan (SOP) 2020-2025 provides an overview of:
- the educational provision on offer in Hackney
- pupil numbers
- projected demand for future years
