Supplementary notes

*"Looked after children" include foster placements, children placed for adoption, placements with parents, other placements in the community, secure units, children's homes and hostels and other residential settings including residential schools continuously for at least 12 months.
Level 4 is the expected level for the age group.
Prior to 2012, the assessment of writing was based on test results whereas after 2012 it was based on teacher assessments; therefore earlier years are not comparable. Figures for 2015 are based on amended attainment data. Figures for all other years are based on final data.
