Things you need to know

In 2017/18, 664,979 pupils were assessed for writing in year 2 (when they are 6 or 7 years old).

Ethnicity was known for 99% of pupils. The broad ethnic breakdown was as follows:

  • 75% of pupils were White
  • 11% were Asian
  • 6% had Mixed ethnicity
  • 5% were Black
  • 0.5% were Chinese

School-level data is not published for key stage 1 subjects.

The Isles of Scilly and the City of London have only one school each. Their results are not included in local authority breakdowns.

This data only includes pupils in state-funded schools.

At the end of year 2, teachers assess pupils in reading, writing, maths and science. Pupils also take tests in reading and maths.

This data only includes teacher assessments, as schools don’t submit test data to the Department of Education.

What the data measures

This data measures the writing attainment of pupils at the end of key stage 1 (year 2), when they are 6 to 7 years old.

Teachers assess each pupil against the following standards:

  • expected standard – pupils are 'working at the expected standard' or 'working at greater depth within the expected standard'
  • higher standard – pupils are 'working at a greater depth within the expected standard'
The ethnic categories used in this data

This data uses categories from the Department for Education’s school census. These groupings are broadly based on the 2001 national Census, with 3 exceptions:

  • Traveller of Irish Heritage and Gypsy/Roma children have been separated into 2 categories
  • Sri Lankan is included in the Asian/Asian British group but is not reported separately
  • Chinese pupils have been assigned a separate category from Asian

These changes were made after consultations with local authorities and lobby groups.

Asian/Asian British:

  • Indian
  • Pakistani
  • Bangladeshi
  • Sri Lankan
  • Other Asian background

Black/African/Caribbean/Black British:
