12 Information about assessment/declaration of disability is unavailable for 2013-14.

13 Note that dyslexia will not always be a disability. It will depend on the severity of each case and whether it has 'a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.'

14 Note that the number of pupils recorded with dyslexia has risen appreciably since 2011-12.

15 The difference has widened since 2013-14 but, 2013-14 was a year with an unusually small gap between male and female leavers at this level.
