New figures released today show the attainment gap between children and young people receiving free school meals and their peers has closed for the second year.
The statistics show a further increase in the proportion of learners eligible for free school meals achieving 5 good GCSEs including Mathematics and English or Welsh first language. This represents the best performance yet by our disadvantaged learners. The data also show that performance for all learners is continuing to improve with attainment at its highest ever levels.
