Unseen children: access and achievement 20 years on

20 Jun 2013 Ofsted

Ref: 130155

Twenty years ago, Ofsted published Access and achievement in urban education, a report looking at seven urban areas with high levels of deprivation, with an update published 10 years later in 2003.

Over the past year Ofsted has undertaken a review in order to understand the current pattern of disadvantage and educational success across England, to learn the lessons of recent policy initiatives, and to come forward with proposals that would really make a difference.

This report sets out some of the main evidence that informed the review. It draws on test and examination data, inspection outcomes, and published reports and research.
