Pupils in Welsh medium schools 'underachieve less'
Primary school children from English-speaking homes who go to Welsh-medium schools are less likely to underachieve than pupils in English-medium schools.
But they are also less likely to be top performers in core subjects, Welsh government figures obtained by BBC Wales show.
They look at how 11-year-olds are doing in English, Maths, Science as well as first language Welsh in Welsh schools.
The performance of 25,000 pupils is compared.
