Ward-Jackson's "Public Sculpture of the City of London" lets us tell you... St Andrew's Parochial School was founded in Brook Market in 1696 (the date displayed by the girl) and moved to a chapel in Hatton Garden in 1721 where were erected 2 pairs of charity children.  After WW2 when that building and this church were both restored following severe bomb damage a pair of the children were erected here.  Dobbins Churches gives some information about the church.
