2.         Performance by gender;

3.         Black and Minority Ethnic children;

4.         Children and Young People in Our Care ;

5.         Children with Special Needs;

6.         Attendance and exclusion figures for Stockton.




1.         The standards and achievement across the Borough for vulnerable groups of children be noted.


2.         The strong overall performance of Stockton schools at both primary and secondary phases be noted.


3.         Work be undertaken to further reduce educational attainment gap.

Reasons for the decision:

The annual report on standards for vulnerable groups across the borough enables Cabinet to monitor standards and achievement and to evaluate the impact of local authority monitoring, challenge, intervention, and support.
