- Statistics & Research
An annual report using pupil attainment data matched to pupil characteristics information from the annual school census to produce data on performance gaps at Key Stages 1 to 4.
- The performance of pupils eligible for free school meals is lower than their non eligible counterparts at all key stages and in all performance measures.
- Looking at the core subject indicator (see definitions), the gap in performance has generally narrowed over the last six years at Key Stages 2 and 3. However at Key Stage 4, the gap in performance in the Level 2 threshold including a GCSE A*-C in English/Welsh and maths had widened every year to 2010 before narrowing in the past three years.
- The gap in performance increases as pupils get older.
- There is a strong link between achievement and the level of entitlement to free school meals: as the level of FSM entitlement increases, the level of achievement decreases.
