The annual update to child education indicators gives data to inform planning for health and associated services for local populations. They are intended for use by local government and health service professionals.
The child education and development indicators which have been updated are:
- persistent absentees in primary and secondary school
- average attainment 8 score of children in care
Some education indicators have not been updated because the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the collection and publication of source data. On the 26 March the Department for Education issued an announcement which gives further information.
The updating of homelessness indicators has been delayed because of data availability. Information about when these indicators will be updated will be included in the PHE statistics release calendar.
