Footnotes

  1. Children achieving at least the expected level in the ELGs within the three prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; communication and language) as well as within literacy and mathematics is classed as achieving a 'good level of development'.
  2. The Communication & Language and Literacy figures in this table are based on data for all children with a valid result for every ELG and may not match those in the additional table published in July 2018 as part of the 2017 statistical release. The figures in the additional table are based on data matched to the national pupil database (NPD) and exclude shielded children and duplicate records.
  3. Achieved at least the expected level in Communication & Language and Literacy are those children who achieved ‘expected’ or ‘exceeded’ in the following early learning goals (ELGs): listening and attention, understanding, speaking, reading and writing.
  4. Percentages rounded to 1 decimal place.
  5. Before using this table please check the methodology section for important information such as definitions, limitations and caveats about the data that may not be included in these footnotes.
  6. Achieved at least the expected level across all ELGs means a child achieved ‘expected’ or ‘exceeded’ in all 17 ELGs.
  7. Average total point score across all the early learning goals (ELGs). This is a supporting measure taking into account performance across all 17 ELGs, 1 point for emerging, 2 for expected and 3 for exceeding. The sum is then taken for all pupils with that characteristic and the mean given.
