National Dataset Report 2022
One of the largest reports into the impact of the disruption caused by the pandemic on primary school children.
Two years since schools closed to most pupils, younger children’s learning is showing no sign of recovery, according to one of the largest reports into the impact of the pandemic on primary school children, released on the 15th March 2022.
The Juniper Education National Dataset Report examines teacher assessment data from over 500,000 pupils representing more than 6,000 primary schools.
It looks at the percentage of pupils achieving, or exceeding, what is expected for their age (age-related expectations) for all pupils who were in primary school at the start of the pandemic – the current Years 3 through to 6. The data compares their attainment in reading, writing and maths with pre-pandemic levels.
This year’s National Dataset Report shows the damage the last two years of turmoil have had on pupils, but schools are doing incredible things to support pupils and families both in and out of school.
