Local authority interactive tool (LAIT)
The tool presents information in interactive tables and charts with the local authority’s rank and position within the national context. It includes data on:
- looked-after children
- child protection
- special educational needs and disability (SEND)
- pupil attainment
- children’s health
- post-16 circumstances
- judgements from Ofsted
We update the data in the LAIT regularly.
We updated the statistical neighbours (local authorities with similar characteristics) used in the LAIT in October 2014. See annex A of the user guide and the statistical neighbour benchmarking tool for further details.
