Academies and free schools underperform in Sats, figures show

Maintained schools in England outperform academies and free schools in national exams taken at the end of year 6, and pupils in multi-academy trusts do worse on average, figures show.

The DfE report said 64% of pupils at multi-academy trusts (Mats) reached the government’s benchmark standards in reading, writing and maths, compared with 66% nationally.

Pupils’ progress in reading was below the national average in 29% of Mats and above the national average in 20%.
