The Department for Education does not hold the information in the form requested and to produce the analysis would incur disproportionate cost.

The Evaluation of Children’s Centres in England (ECCE) published in June 2014 shows that of those centres evaluated in 2013, 17 per cent were situated in the 10 per cent most disadvantaged neighbourhoods nationally. This is only based on a small sample (128 centres) and is unlikely to be generally representative.
