Data about children and young people

20 September 2013

The Local Area Interactive Tool (LAIT) is an Excel-based tool that provides user-friendly access to a system that brings together a consistent set of local authority (LA) performance and data items including:

  • inspectorate judgements
  • contextual information about individual LAs, including number and type of schools, social deprivation factors
  • pupil attainment, health, looked-after children, child protection, post-16, etc

The LAIT includes baseline and time-series data for more than 250 different data items allowing comparisons to be made both over time and, for benchmarking purposes, against national, regional and statistical neighbour groups. The information is presented in interactive tables and charts with the LA's rank and quartile position included to indicate performance in the national context. The LAIT data is continuously updated when new data is released so that users always have access to the very latest information.
