Data set from Key stage 2 attainment

Attainment by phonics prior attainment

Latest data
Published
Last updated

This file contains data on the attainment of pupils in key stage 2 assessments in England, broken down by phonics prior attainment. This file gives breakdowns for all pupils and by disadvantage status. 

Within the underlying data file all rows where "disadvantaged status" is "All pupils" reflect the figures for all schools in England. Rows where "disadvantaged status" is "Disadvantaged" or "Not known to be disadvantaged" reflect the figures for all state-funded schools in England. As a result numbers of "Disadvantaged" and "Not known to be disadvantaged" will not sum to "All pupils".

Footnotes

  1. Data is not available for 2020 and 2021 as assessments were cancelled in these years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  2. Writing teacher assessment and reading, writing and maths (combined) measures from 2018 onwards are not directly comparable to previous years due to changes in the writing teacher assessment frameworks.
  3. '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.
  4. Figures for 2023 are based on revised data. Figures for other years are based on final data.
