These latest statistics complement the 2009 attainment figures which were previously published on 13 May 2010. Institution-based tables for 2009 to 2010 were published on 25 May 2011. Pupil residency-based tables for 2009 to 2010 were published on 16 June 2011.
The following data is available.
Tables based on the geographic location of institution (early years setting, school or college):
- Pupil attainment by gender at EYFSP, KS1, KS2, KS4 and KS5 referenced by location of educational institution at national, regional, local authority district (LAD) and middle layer super output area (MSOA) level (EYFSP and KS1 only).
Pupil residency-based tables:
- Pupil attainment by gender at EYFSP, KS1, KS4 and KS5 referenced by location of pupil residence, at national, regional, LAD, MSOA and lower layer super output area (LSOA) level. Pupil attainment by gender at KS2 down to LAD level.
- Pupil attainment by FSM eligibility at EYFSP, KS1 and KS4 referenced by location of pupil residence, at national, regional, LAD and MSOA level. Pupil attainment by FSM eligibility at KS2 down to LAD level.
- Pupil attainment by ethnic group at EYFSP, KS1, KS2, KS4 and KS5 referenced by location of pupil residence, at national, regional and LAD level.
The key points from the latest release are:
- The tables reinforce previous messages about patterns of attainment and about the relationship between attainment and gender at national, regional and local levels.
- At EYFSP, a higher percentage of girls achieved a good level of development than boys in all LADs. Girls continue to perform better than boys in the majority of LADs at KS1, particularly in English subjects. At KS2 girls perform better than boys in English, and in the majority of LADs in English and maths combined but not in maths. At KS4 and KS5, girls also outperform boys in the large majority of LADs. There is evidence of local variation in the extent to which the gap between boys and girls is either increasing or closing across key stages and subjects across the country.
Pupil residency-based tables:
- The tables reinforce the relationship between attainment and gender, attainment and FSM eligibility and attainment and ethnicity identified in previous publications across Key Stages.
- At EYFSP, resident girls consistently perform better than resident boys in all LADs. At KS1 and KS2, resident girls also perform better than resident boys, particularly in English subjects. At KS4 and KS5, resident girls also outperform resident boys in all but a small number of LADs.
- Overall, non-FSM pupils perform significantly better than FSM pupils in all areas of the country. The performance gap starts at EYFSP and continues through Key Stages 1, 2 and 4.
- Chinese pupils continue to have the highest levels of attainment across all key stages and almost all regions. Black pupils have some of the lowest levels of attainment across the country across all key stages.
