This report shows the results of analysis on the starting points and progress of children in Scotland in Primary 1 in early maths, early literacy and non-cognitive development and behaviour.

Executive Summary

Over 1100 schools in Scotland use the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring’s (CEM) Performance Indicators in Primary Schools assessment. This assesses children’s progress in Primary 1 in early maths, early literacy and non-cognitive development and behaviour. On the basis of this data CEM analysed the starting points and progress of pupils in P1, and examined differences between children of different age, gender and deprivation area. It also considered differences between Scotland and England and between schools in Scotland, and whether children’s starting points and progress in P1 changed over time.
