The percentage of children achieving a good level of development at the end of reception is increasing, as is the percentage of children achieving 5 A*-C GCSEs including English and Maths. However it is still below that for England.

Teenage conceptions continue to decline and the rate is lower than England. However, there are still more than 100 teenagers becoming mothers each year in Norfolk.

The rate of admissions for injury in children aged under 14 is higher in Norfolk than for England. However, the rate of under 18’s admitted to hospital due to alcohol specific conditions is significantly less than that of England and continues to decline. Admissions for self harm and substance misuse are increasing, perhaps evidence of unaddressed mental health need.
