This file contains local authority responses to the early years local authority survey from Monday 4 April 2020 to Monday 28 December 2020. Values of less than 5 for the Total Children in Early Years Settings and  Total Vulnerable Children in Early Years Settings have been suppressed and have been replaced with a “c”. Some responses from local authorities during this time period have been removed where the Department for Education has been notified of a mistaken entry, or where the department believes a mistaken entry has been given based on high level validation checks. Additionally, where a local authority has submitted multiple responses on the same day only the most recent response on that date has been retained. The data covers England only.

Footnotes

  1. Regional level data is based on responding schools only. Unlike national level data, no adjustments are made for non-response. Response rates vary by local authority and different schools within a region may respond on different days. Care should be taken when comparing regions and when interpreting trends over time because differences could be due to response bias or different schools being included in the data.
  2. Local authority responses to the early years local authority survey from Monday 4 April 2020 to Monday 28 December 2020. Values of less than 5 for the Total Children in Early Years Settings and Total Vulnerable Children in Early Years Settings have been suppressed and have been replaced with a “c”. Some responses from local authorities during this time period have been removed where the Department for Education has been notified of a mistaken entry, or where the department believes a mistaken entry has been given based on high level validation checks. The data presented is largely as received from Local Authorities. While there are some basic validation checks on very unusual values, the frequency of data the data collection means it is not possible to validate every value. As such caution should be applied when viewing LA level data. Additionally, where a local authority has submitted multiple responses on the same day only the most recent response on that date has been retained. The data covers England only.
  3. The following education settings are included: academies (including free schools and studio schools), local authority maintained schools (excluding local authority nursery schools), non-maintained special schools, alternative provision and university technical colleges.
