  1. Figures for 2022 are based on revised data. Figures for other years are based on final data.
  2. Data is not available for 2020 and 2021 as assessments were cancelled in these years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  3. 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.
