§ Mr. Gordon Marsden
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has to review the presentation of statistics for primary and secondary school performance to give greater prominence to the progress made over a three year period by the schools concerned. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
I announced on 25 June that the secondary school performance tables to be published this November will show schools performance over the last three years. Primary tables will be published locally by LEAs in January. LEAs will be able to publish information on school improvement alongside the core data. We are also working to include measures of value added in the performance tables of 1998 data.
