Chapter 5: Achievement of CfE levels by Urban Rural Classification

  • The percentage of P1 and P4 pupils that achieved the expected level for their stage was highest for pupils living in accessible rural areas. Performance was highest for P7 pupils from large urban and accessible rural areas.
  • Performance tended to be lower for pupils from remote small towns (and remote rural areas in the case of some P4 pupils) .

The percentage of P1 pupils achieving the expected level for their stage was highest for pupils from accessible rural areas and lowest for pupils from remote small towns, for all four organisers.

The percentage of P4 pupils achieving the level was highest for pupils from accessible rural areas; performance was lowest for pupils from remote small towns and remote rural areas.

Performance at P7 tended to be highest for pupils from large urban areas and accessible rural areas; whereas a lower percentage of pupils from remote small towns achieved the level in each organiser.

The percentage of S3 pupils achieving Third Level or better was generally high across most categories for all organisers (88 – 92 per cent), apart from pupils from remote small towns where there was slightly lower performance (e.g. 82 per cent for numeracy).
