Achievement of Curriculum for Excellence High Level Summary

Achievement of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) Levels - High Level Summary

This page is no longer being updated.

The Achievement of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) return collects data each year from for all pupils in Primary 1, Primary 4, Primary 7 and Secondary 3 in publicly funded primary and secondary schools, and for all pupils based in special schools/units.  This return measures national performance in aspects of literacy (i.e. reading, writing, and listening and talking) and numeracy, and reports on the proportion of pupils who have achieved the expected CfE level, based on teacher professional judgements, relevant to their stage.  The information was based on teacher professional judgements as at June 2017.

More detailed information, including national results by gender, ASN, EAL and ethnic background, local authority and school level can be found at here.
