This data shows Education Attainment at Key Stage 2. Numbers and percentages of pupils reaching the expected standard in reading, writing, and mathematics are shown by gender.
Points to be aware of:
- Key Stage 2 attainment is based on the percentage of pupils achieving the expected standard or above in each of Reading and Maths Tests and Writing Teacher Assessment. More Information: see the Primary Curriculum, Key Stage 2 website (link to this included as Resource accompanying these datasets).
Data is included for Wards, Lower Super Output Areas (LSOA), Districts, and Lincolnshire. The data has been aggregated based on pupil postcode and only includes those pupils living and educated within Lincolnshire. If you want Lincolnshire and District aggregations based on those pupils that are educated within Lincolnshire, irrespective of where they live; then please see the Department for Education Statistics website and School Performance Tables (links to these included as Resources accompanying these datasets).
Data is suppressed where appropriate 5 persons and below (this may be shown by missing data). That and any unmatched postcodes may mean numbers for small areas might not add up exactly to figures shown for larger areas.
This data is updated annually. Data source: Lincolnshire County Council, Performance Services – Schools Performance.

It is worth noting that there have been drops in attainment seen nationally. The DfE offer the following commentary via the link above:
“These statistics cover the attainment of year 6 pupils who took assessments in summer 2022. These pupils experienced disruption to their learning during the pandemic, particularly at the end of year 4 and in year 5.
In individual subjects, attainment increased slightly in reading and fell in all other subjects compared to 2019 at both the expected and higher standard.
75% of pupils met the expected standard in reading, up from 73% in 2019.
71% of pupils met the expected standard in maths, down from 79% in 2019
69% of pupils met the expected standard in writing, down from 78% in 2019.
Attainment in reading, writing and maths (combined) has decreased compared to 2019 at both the expected and higher standard.
The Department for Education considers meeting the expected standard in reading, writing and maths to be key for success in secondary school and beyond. Therefore, in addition to attainment in individual subjects, we report on the proportion of pupils who meet the expected standard in all three of these subjects.
59% of pupils met the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, down from 65% in 2019.”
