Primary league tables: Most improved

This table shows the primary schools which have seen the biggest sustained improvement in the proportion of pupils attaining the government benchmark in their national curriculum tests, known as Sats.

The schools listed have all improved year-on-year, since 2008, in terms of the percentage of students achieving Level 4 in both maths and English.

These are ranked by the size of the total increase between 2008 and 2010.

The list does not include schools with fewer than 11 pupils, whose results are not published, or any of the 25% of schools which chose to boycott Sats this year.

The BBC has chosen to rank improvement on the Level 4 measure as it is a key government benchmark. Other improvement tables, based on the average point scores of pupils, may show different results.
