This data pack, which is available to download from the associated resources section, analyses in detail the attainment outcomes of looked after children when set against other aspects of their lives such as placement stability, education placement, progression, special educational needs, exclusions and absence. This information will be of interest to all who have a part to play in ensuring looked after children fulfil their potential, in particular to virtual school heads, designated teachers and social workers.
Each chart includes a short commentary and each section is followed by further analysis plus a number of suggested questions to consider. Using these national figures and comparing them with local data will help local authorities assess the strengths and weaknesses of their current service provision. We hope that this rich set of data and analysis will help local authorities to pinpoint what improvements need to be made to help support looked after children more and inspire them to succeed.
