A report on patterns in attainment in reading and numeracy, using national-level data from the personalised assessments. Online personalised assessments are taken by all learners in Year 2 to Year 9 in maintained schools in Wales.

This report includes and supplements the data provided in a short report on reading and numeracy attainment published in November 2023. It presents information on reading and numeracy attainment changes over time, with the addition of analysis by sex and also the gap between pupils eligible for free school meals and their peers. The analysis has been carried out using anonymised, national-level data from the personalised assessments, up to the end of the 2022/23 school year.
