Details

This statistical first release provides information at national and local authority level on the outcomes for children looked after continuously for at least 12 months at 31 March 2017.

Local authority data is published in the underlying data.

The outcome measures cover:

  • educational attainment (at key stage 1, key stage 2 and key stage 4)
  • special educational needs
  • absence from school
  • exclusions from school

There are two new tables this year at national level at key stage 4; both provide additional breakdowns of the Progress 8 measure (school type and length of most recent period of care).

It also includes experimental statistics on educational attainment (at key stage 2 and key stage 4) of previously looked after children who left care through an adoption, special guardianship order (SGO) or child arrangements order (CAO).
