Chapter 2: Achievement of CfE levels by SIMD

  • Pupils from the least deprived areas performed better than pupils from the most deprived areas at all stages, in all four organisers of reading, writing, listening and talking and numeracy.
  • Within Primary schools, the largest gap was at P7 in writing (22 percentage points); with the smallest gap at P1 in listening and talking (12 percentage points).
  • At S3, the largest gap was in numeracy performance at 15 percentage points.

Across all stages, the percentage of pupils achieving the expected CfE level increased as the level of deprivation decreased.

Chart 2.1 shows that the smallest performance gaps were reported for S3, where the gap between least and most deprived pupils achieving Third Level or better was 11 percentage points for reading and listening and talking; 12 for writing and 15 for numeracy. The largest performance gap was reported for P7 pupils, with the largest in writing at 22 percentage points.
