Attainment in maths has fallen for some pupils in Scotland, according to a survey.

The Scottish Survey of Literacy and Numeracy showed that the proportion of P4 and S2 students performing well or very well had fallen between 2013 and 2015.

Education Secretary, John Swinney, said: "Pupils from better off areas recorded better results than those from the most deprived communities."

The survey is an annual sample monitoring national performance of school children at P4, P7 and S2 in literacy and numeracy, approximately 10,000 pupils in 2,200 schools took part.
