BBC - it's the annual gathering of the PANDA report figures.
When special schools are included, 798,210 pupils in England's state schools do not speak English as their first language. About one in seven children at primary school in England and one in 10 at secondary school speak a language other than English at home. The figures come from the government's annual school census.
At primary level, 21.9% of pupils are from ethnic minorities, up from 20.6% last year. In secondary schools, the figure is 17.7%, up from 16.8% in 2006.
Anyone who does not describe themselves as being white British is defined as an ethnic minority in the census.
“This is a tragic loss.”
