  1. Data is not available for 2020 and 2021 as assessments were cancelled in these years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  2. 'All schools' includes all state-funded schools, alternative provision, and non-maintained special schools with pupils eligible for assessment at key stage 2. Participation by independent schools is voluntary, therefore the ‘All schools’ figures includes results from independent schools that chose to submit data and met the requirements for assessment and moderation.
  3. Figures for 2023 are based on revised data. Figures for other years are based on final data.
