The report finds numerous examples of differential outcomes for children in areas such as health and wellbeing and educational attainment, particularly for those from a lower socio-economic background. Children from areas of higher socio-economic deprivation have higher rates of infant mortality, air pollution in their local areas, exclusion from school, tooth decay and obesity. They also have lower levels of educational attainment at each Key Stage, as do looked-after children and children from Gypsy and Gypsy Roma backgrounds. More data are needed in some areas to assess whether further inequalities exist. In particular, there are gaps on data relating to asylum-seeking and refugee children, and disabled children and children from ethnic minorities living in poverty. There is also an absence of disaggregated data in respect of instances of bullying in schools.
