Chapter 6: Achievement of CfE levels by Additional Support Needs (ASN) status

  • A lower percentage of pupils with a recorded Additional Support Need achieved the expected CfE level compared to pupils with no ASN (where ASN status known).
  • The disparity in performance increased throughout the primary stages, but was lowest overall in S3.
  • The difference in performance was lowest in listening and talking for all stages , apart from P1 where the smallest gap was in numeracy.

The percentage of pupils achieving expected levels was higher for pupils recorded as not having an Additional Support Need ( ASN), compared to pupils with a known ASN, across all stages and organisers.

The difference in performance was lowest in numeracy at P1 (20 percentage points) and listening and talking for all other stages.

At P4 and P7, the greatest difference in performance was in writing, with gaps of 34 and 38 percentage points, respectively.

For S3 (Third Level or better), the highest percentage point difference was in numeracy, with 94 per cent of pupils with no ASN achieving the expected level, compared to 74 per cent of pupils with a recorded ASN.
