The worst results
This page lists the 209 primary schools with the poorest Key Stage 2 national curriculum test results in England in 2007, with the worst at the top.

Each had an "aggregate" score of 158 or less out of 300 in all three test results (the column headed AGG) achieved by their Year 6 pupils.

The APS column shows pupils' average point scores. The CVA column is their contextual value added progress measure, based around 100.

The final column of figures shows the proportion of those taking the tests who had special educational needs (SEN).

In addition, results at four schools were annulled following investigations by the National Assessment Agency: St Charles' Catholic primary in Liverpool and Brockswood primary in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, St Bernadette's Roman Catholic primary in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and Springfield community primary in Hackney, London.

William Cowper primary school in Birmingham had its English results annulled because of concerns over the writing test involving 24 of the 38 pupils.
