Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Morgan of Drefelin on 20 January (WA 194–95), whether future issues of Outcome Indicators for Children Looked After will indicate how many (a) boys, and (b) girls, achieved GCSE grades A*–C, including mathematics and English. [HL997]

There are no plans at present to include this information in future issues of Outcome Indicators for Children Looked After. However, the Government do recognise the usefulness of more detailed information in terms of its potential to lead to improved outcomes. We are therefore exploring ways of obtaining this either through existing data sources via other means without placing additional burdens on local authorities.
