To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will publish the Key Stage examination grades for (a) looked-after children and (b) other children, broken down by (i) Key Stage placement and (ii) educational provider for each of the last five years for which information is available.

The Department published attainment data at key stages 1, 2 and 4 for children who have been looked after continuously for at least twelve months at 31 March and other children in Tables 1 to 3d of the following statistical first release, SFR 12/2017 Outcomes for children looked after by local authorities in England, 31 March 2016, which is available at: www.gov.uk/government/statistics/outcomes-for-children-looked-after-by-las-31-march-2016.

However, I am sorry but figures by educational provider are not readily available and to provide them for each measure at each key stage over five years would incur a disproportional cost.

Attainment data for looked after children is not available at key stages 3 or 5.
