Children in Care: Staffordshire

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what percentage of looked-after children in Staffordshire achieved results equivalent to or higher than the average results achieved by all children in (a) England and (b) Staffordshire in each key stage examination in each of the last five years. (282488)

Published information for children looked after continuously for 12 months at 30 September each year is available in the local authority tables via the following links:

2004—tables 2 to 4

2005—tables 2 to 5

2006— tables 2 to 5

2007— tables 2 to 5

2008— tables 2 to 5

All tables show the attainment for each key stage for looked after children compared to all children. This shows the numbers and percentages achieving the expected level which are provided instead of the average results.

Data for key stage 1 are not included for 2004 because this was the trial year for key stage 1 teacher assessments—as this took place in a sample of schools; it is not possible to provide a comparison between the attainments of looked after children and all children.
