In a statement, the council said that it had merely been pointing out that children from deprived backgrounds were more likely to be withdrawn from the test by their parents.

I feel sure that they must do, because I think any authority operating an opt-out system would be wanting to understand what is going on with those children/families.

It is probably analysed by postcode and then compared to ACORN data.
