Primary league tables: Regional picture

This table shows how primary school attainment varies between England's local authorities.

The authorities are ranked firstly on the percentage of pupils attaining the government benchmark of Level 4 in both their maths and English Sats.

The average point score in the national curriculum tests, out of a maximum of 33, is then used as a tie-break.

About a quarter of schools boycotted the Sats tests this year, and where there is not enough data to give an accurate figure, government statisticians have not published averages.
