The 'most improved' schools
This is a list of the 101 "most improved" primary schools in England, issued by the Department for Children, Schools and Families.

The columns of figures show the aggregate score out of 300 at Level 4 in the Key Stage 2 tests for the years 2004 - 2007, and the overall increase.

The key to inclusion is consistency: a school's results have to have improved each year (or at least stayed the same). Other schools might have had a greater absolute rise but with a dip along the way.
