In 2014/15, 84% of Hackney pupils achieved level 4 or above at KS2 in reading tests, writing teacher assessment and mathematics tests. This was equal to the London average (84%), and slightly above the England average (80%) in the same year. Compared to Hackney’s statistical peers, Hackney pupils performed roughly in the middle (Figure 13).

Achievement of level 4 or above in reading tests, writing teacher assessment and mathematics tests in Hackney has risen from 76% in 2012 to 84% in 2014, and, while this upward trend in results has also been seen across London and England (Figure 14), Hackney now outperforms the national average.

  1. In 2012, English was calculated from reading test results and writing teacher assessment rather than from reading and writing tests as in previous years, as such data is not comparable before 2012.
