Impact of Covid-19 on attainment: analysis three years on


We have analysed the results from the Progress Test Series – covering English, maths and science – taken in 2022 and compared them with the results from 2019, 2020 and 2021. See how your school’s data compares by reading our new report.

Key findings include:

  • In 2022, further (though much more modest) returns to pre-pandemic levels of attainment were seen in English and science, while performance in maths overall remained in line with 2021.
  • While the range of school mean scores has narrowed, there are still a greater number of schools whose scores are below those achieved pre-pandemic.
  • The gap between pupils on Free School Meals and their peers has continued to grow in English and maths.
