The Born in Bradford (BiB) cohort of 13,776 children born between
2007-2011 and their parents provides a rich data resource for researchers
exploring protective and risk factors influencing long-term developmental
and health outcomes. Educational attainment is a critical factor related to
later health. Literacy and communication, fine motor skills and social and
emotional health are key ‘early’ predictors of educational attainment and
can be used to identify children in need of additional support. We describe
our BiB ‘Starting School’ data collection protocol which assessed literacy
and communication, fine motor skills and social and emotional health on
3,444 BiB children aged 4-5 years old. These measures supplement the
existing dataset, and complement the routine educational, health and social
care data available for the cohort.
