How different areas performed
Success and struggle seem to be more entrenched than ever in the two local authorities at either end of this year's primary school tables.

A league based on pupils' performances in their Sats tests is headed by Richmond upon Thames - home to royal parks and English rugby.

Bringing up the rear is the inner London borough of Hackney.

Both have held those places for four years - though this year Hackney improved a bit and Richmond slipped.

The table below shows LAs ranked on their aggregate scores.

The second column of figures is the average points score.

The third column shows the average of the value added measure schools achieved.
