Chapter 8: Achievement of CfE levels in Gàidhlig

  • The percentage of primary pupils, in Gaelic Medium Schools/classes, achieving the expected CfE level was highest for Gàidhlig listening and talking, and lowest for Gàidhlig writing.
  • The percentage of S3 pupils achieving the expected CfE level was highest for reading and listening and talking (98 per cent) and lower for writing (94 per cent).

The pattern of Gàidhlig reading and writing performance was similar to English reading and writing; the percentage of pupils achieving expected CfE levels decreased throughout the primary stages and increased again in S3. For Gàidhlig listening and talking, however, the highest percentage of primary pupils that achieved the expected level was observed at P4, at 83 per cent.

At S3, performance was highest in Gàidhlig reading and Gàidhlig listening and talking.
