Chapter 4: Achievement of CfE levels by ethnicity

  • Generally, a lower percentage of pupils of White – Non Scottish and Other Ethnicity backgrounds are achieving the expected CfE level compared to other pupils particularly from P4 onwards in the literacy organisers.
  • A higher percentage of pupils of Asian – Chinese ethnic background are achieving the expected CfE level in numeracy compared to all other ethnic backgrounds .

The highest percentage of pupils that achieved the expected CfE level in numeracy was for pupils of an Asian – Chinese background, with results of 89 per cent for all primary stages and 99 per cent for S3.

The lowest literacy performance at P1 was reported for pupils of Asian – Pakistani and of Other Ethnicity backgrounds.
