In Glasgow primary schools in 2014, 17.9% of pupils were recorded as having English as an Additional Language. The proportions and numbers of Glasgow primary school pupils who are recorded as having English as an Additional Language vary across the Glasgow SIMD deciles. The highest proportion of Glasgow primary school pupils who are recorded as having English as an Additional Language have their address in the 7th decile (32.9%). The lowest proportion of Glasgow primary school pupils (10.4%) who are recorded as having English as an Additional Language have their address in the 10th decile which is the least deprived. This is similar to the proportions (14.9%) that have their address in decile 1, the most deprived area.

Glasgow SIMD deprivation – This is a local index of deprivation for Glasgow based on Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD 2009) rankings applied to Glasgow datazones.  The purpose of creating this local index of deprivation is to be able to analyse an outcome against an even distribution of deprivation deciles.

Deprivation deciles -  the term ‘deprivation decile’ is used to represent 10% of a population with a particular level of deprivation. Thus, the most deprived decile equates to the most deprived 10% within a population, while the least deprived decile represents the 10% of a population living in the least deprived circumstances.

SIMD – Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation provides a relative measure of deprivation based on indicators from 7 domains – income, employment, health, education, access, housing, crime. The index identifies multiple deprivation for 6505 small areas (datazones) across Scotland.  There have been four versions of SIMD to date. The initial index of 2004 (SIMD 2004) has been revised three times in 2006 (SIMD 2006), 2009 (SIMD 2009) and 2012 (SIMD 2012).  For more information go to the SIMD site.
