This report drew on measures of language ability which were gathered from children participating in the Growing Up in Scotland study at the time they were about to or had recently entered primary school and again when they were in Primary 6.

The findings in this report suggest that there is still a gap between more and less advantaged children as children reach the last years of primary school. This is the case regardless of whether the gap is measured with respect to family income, area deprivation or the parent’s level of education.
