Details

The local authority interactive tool (LAIT) presents information in interactive tables and charts with the local authority’s rank and position in England.

It includes data on:

  • children looked after by local authorities
  • child protection
  • special educational needs and disability (SEND)
  • pupil attainment
  • children’s health
  • post-16 circumstances
  • judgements from Ofsted

The ‘Children’s services statistical neighbour benchmarking tool’ allows you to select a local authority and display its ‘closest statistical neighbours’ (local authorities with similar characteristics). More information is available in appendix A of the ‘Local authority interactive tool: user guide’.

We update the data in the LAIT regularly and record changes in the version log.

If you have any queries or comments about the tool, please contact us.
