Social factors should be taken into account more by school inspectors and in league tables, says a company whose research into the subject is reported in The Times (p16).

Information services company Experian found that children in affluent neighbourhoods are 20 times more likely than those in areas of low-cost housing to attend a primary school at the top of the league table.
