Chapter 6: Achievement of CfE levels by English as an Additional Language (EAL) status

  • Where the English as an Additional Language (EAL) status of a child is known, a lower percentage of children with EAL achieve the expected CfE level compared to children with no EAL.
  • The differences in the percentage of children who have EAL achieving the expected CfE level compared with children who do not have EAL is lower for numeracy than for reading, writing and listening & talking across all primary and secondary stages.
  • The differences in the percentage of children who have EAL achieving the expected CfE level compared with children who do not have EAL remains fairly constant in all primary stages, but becomes much smaller in Secondary 3.
