Things you need to know

In the 2018 to 2019 school year, 644,769 pupils were assessed for reading in key stage 2 at state-funded schools.

Ethnicity was known for 99% of pupils. Of those:

  • 74% of pupils were White
  • 11% were Asian
  • 6% had Mixed ethnicity
  • 6% were Black
  • 0.4 % were Chinese
  • 2% were from Other ethnic groups

There were 2,320 White Gypsy and Roma pupils and 473 Traveller of Irish Heritage pupils.

The Isles of Scilly had 19 pupils and the City of London had 28. Please use caution when interpreting figures for these groups and local authorities as they are based on small numbers of pupils.

Numbers of pupils vary in the results for different subjects. This is because pupils who don’t have a valid result for a particular subject are excluded from the total. For more about valid results, see the Methodology.

What the data measures

The data measures the reading attainment of pupils at the end of key stage 2 (year 6), when children are usually 10 or 11 years old.

The data covers the 2018 to 2019 school year. The download file also provides attainment for pupils who were eligible for free school meals and those who were not eligible.

Teachers assess each pupil against the following standards:

  • expected standard – pupils must have a ‘scaled score’ of 100 or more
  • higher standard – pupils must have a ‘scaled score’ of 110 or more

Figures for each ethnic group include:

  • average scaled scores
  • progress scores

Scaled scores range from 80 to 120. They allow for variations in test difficulty year on year and help give a clearer comparison between years. Read more about scaled scores at key stage 2.

The progress score measures the progress that pupils make between the end of key stage 1 (primary school year 2) and the end of key stage 2 (year 6). A pupil’s results are compared with the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar key stage 1 results. This data shows an average progress score for each ethnic group.

A progress score of 0 (the national average) means pupils are making the expected amount of progress.

A positive score (0.1 and above) means they are making more progress than expected.

A negative score (-0.1 and below) means they are making less progress than expected.

The ethnic categories used in this data

This data uses categories from the Department for Education’s school census. These groupings are based on the 2001 national Census, with 2 exceptions:

  • White Irish Traveller and White Gypsy and Roma children have been separated into 2 categories
  • pupils in the Chinese ethnic group are in a separate category from Asian pupils

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

Local authority data is only provided for 6 ethnic groups:

  • Asian
  • Black
  • Chinese
  • Mixed
  • White
  • Other

Summary of Reading results for 10 to 11 year olds By ethnicity and area Summary

The data shows that:

  • out of all local authorities, White pupils were most likely to meet the expected standard in Richmond upon Thames (90%) and least likely to in Peterborough, and Slough (64%) – this doesn't include City of London and Isles of Scilly which only have one school each, and whose results need to be treated with caution
  • figures for other ethnic groups are based on small numbers of pupils, so reliable generalisations can't be made

  • 32% of girls and 22% of boys met the higher standard
  • in every ethnic group, girls were more likely than boys to meet both the expected and higher standard
  • girls from the Chinese ethnic group were the most likely to meet the expected (85%) and higher standard (48%)
  • boys from the White Gypsy and Roma ethnic group were the least likely to meet the expected (23%) and higher standard (4%)
  • the smallest gap between girls (84%) and boys (80%) meeting the expected standard was in the White Irish ethnic group
  • the biggest gap between girls (74%) and boys (59%) meeting the expected standard was in the Black Caribbean ethnic group
  • overall, the average scaled score was 106 for girls and 103 for boys
  • girls from the White Irish and Chinese ethnic groups had the highest average scaled score (108)
  • boys from the White Gypsy and Roma ethnic group had the lowest average scaled score (94)
  • overall, girls had an above average progress score of 0.6, while boys had a below average progress score of -0.5
  • girls from the White Irish ethnic group made the most progress with an average score of 2.3
  • boys from the White Gypsy and Roma ethnic group made the least progress with an average score of -1.6

5. Methodology

The key stage 2 datasets combine information from the following 2 data sources:

  • key stage 1 results
  • school census records

Key stage 2 data from the Standard Testing Agency is matched to school census records to identify pupils’ ethnicities and free school meal eligibility.

Only pupils with a valid outcome are included in the calculations for that subject.

Valid outcomes are:

  • achieved the higher standard
  • achieved the expected standard
  • working towards the expected standard
  • special consideration
  • absent
  • working below the standard of the test
  • unable to access the test

Confidence intervals

Confidence intervals are calculated for a school based on a specific group of pupils. This is because:

  • a school may perform differently with a different set of pupils
  • some pupils may be more likely to achieve high or low results, independently of which school they attend

To account for this uncertainty, it is best to interpret these school scores alongside their associated confidence intervals. You can see these if you download the data.

How school scores are interpreted alongside their confidence intervals:

  • if the lower confidence interval is greater than zero, the school has achieved greater than average progress compared to pupils with similar starting points nationally
  • if the upper confidence interval is below zero, then the school has made less than average progress
  • where the 95% confidence intervals overlap zero, this means that the school’s progress score is not significantly different from the national

Rounding

Percentages given in charts, tables and downloads are rounded to the nearest whole number. Progress scores are given to 1 decimal place.
