- 55.8% of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals achieved the expected level in both English and mathematics compared with 77.1% of those who were not known to be eligible. The gap is larger in English than it is in Mathematics.
- The proportion of pupils with SEN without a statement who reached the expected level in both English and mathematics has risen from 33.9% in 2009 to 36.6% in 2010. The proportion of pupils with a statement who achieved the expected level in English and mathematics has changed little from last year.
