Achievements of pupils in state-funded primary schools in England have now been published.

Just 5 per cent of primary schools have been announced as being below the floor standard.  Schools are considered under-performing if fewer than 65 per cent of pupils fail to reach the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, or if they fail to make sufficient progress in these three key areas.

This figure is less than the number of schools in this category last year.  The figures confirm that 477 primary schools will be classed as ‘coasting’ – a new measure intended to help the government identify where intervention is needed.

 

The 2016 tables show:

  • results from the key stage 2 tests in:
    • reading
    • grammar, punctuation and spelling
    • mathematics
  • key stage 2 teacher assessments in:
    • English
    • reading
    • writing
    • mathematics
    • science
  • key stage 1 to 2 pupil progress measures in:
    • reading
    • writing
    • mathematics

Additional school-level data includes:

  • information on the expenditure of each local-authority-maintained school open for the full 2015 to 2016 financial year
  • the number of teachers, teaching assistants and other school staff
  • the pupil to teacher ratio
  • the mean gross salary of full-time teachers
  • pupil characteristics
  • pupil absences
