NSW government schools by FOEI bands and SA4 groupings (2014-2022)

Data Notes:

  • NSW government schools by Family Occupation and Education Index (FOEI), as at Mid-Year Census, conducted in August each year.

  • FOEI is a school level index of educational disadvantage related to socioeconomic background. It has been selected as the basis of the equity loading for socio-economic background in the department’s Resource Allocation Model.

  • Includes all hospital schools, Stewart House School and Royal Far West School.

  • Excludes Aurora College, Palm Avenue School, NSW School of Languages and all Environmental Education Centres.

  • As of 2022, Norfolk Island (previously included in North West NSW SA4 Grouping from 2016) is no longer under the jurisdiction of NSW, and therefore not included in the figures.

  • SA4 groupings are a geographical structure based on the ABS Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

  • More information on the FOEI methodology and SA4 groupings is available in the Statistical Bulletin explanatory notes.
