Children whose first language is not English have outperformed their peers in a new times tables test for children aged eight and nine.

Data from the Department for Education (DfE) shows pupils without English as a first language soared ahead in the maths check.

The findings give further weight to the theory that families from abroad are more motivated to achieve than those born in the UK.

Despite the language barrier, migrant pupils have repeatedly outperformed peers in a range of other education measures.

Experts believe parents from other countries have a more positive attitude to education and a more aspirational outlook than British families.

The test, taken in the summer, involved 25 times tables questions, up to 12 x 12, with a maximum of six seconds to answer each one.

The average score for those with a first language of English was 19.4 out of 25, while the average score for pupils with a first language other than English was 21.2.

For all pupils, the overall average score was 19.8 out of 25.

More than a quarter - 27 per cent - of all pupils got full marks.

London was the highest performing region in the country, with an average score of 20.9.

The South West was the lowest performing region, with an average score of 19.1.

It is the first results publication after the assessment became statutory in 2021/22.

The DfE said it will provide teachers with standardised information to help identify pupils who might need extra support.

Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said: ‘When I was at primary school, I was fortunate enough to have been taught my times tables, but for many children it was luck of the draw depending on their school.

‘It’s a skill I have used throughout my life, whether in international business or a trip to the supermarket, which is why we are making sure each and every child today is leaving school with those vital foundations.

‘The first ever results for our new, national multiplications table check.... provide a valuable benchmark for us to build from and help our brilliant teachers provide targeted support to the children need it most.’

2022 PFL Championships: Twitter reacts to the first PFL PPV event

See the MMA community’s thoughts on the 2022 PFL Championships — the PFL’s first attempt at a pay-per-view card.

The PFL ended its 2022 campaign with a bold move, as its 2022 PFL Championships card, which took place on Nov. 25 at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, marked the first time the promotion attempted a pay-per-view broadcast.

Following a five-fight preliminary card that aired on ESPN+, topped by Marlon Moraes vs. Sheymon Moraes, the promotion presented the six-season title fights — plus a women’s featherweight showcase bout featuring Julia Budd and Aspen Ladd — exclusively on ESPN+ pay-per-view for $49.99.

While the PFL has its fanbase, unique season-and-playoff format, and $1 million prizes for the tournament champions, the decision to mark up the event as a pay-per-view for that price has been considered questionable among fans and pundits.

Ultimately, the PFL Championships card had its highlights and a great quality of fights; however, the $49.99 price tag still seemed to be a concern after the event’s conclusion.

The event caused further debate after its main event when Kayla Harrison — considered the face of the PFL — lost for the first time in her MMA career when she dropped a unanimous decision to Larissa Pacheco.

Twitter reacts to the first-ever PFL pay-per-view

While the decision to go on PPV is still questionable, the PFL has to be happy with that finale. They went out in 2022 with a pretty solid bang. Good supporting fights as well. #PFLWorldChampionship

This is been a pretty polished PFL PPV overall, I must say. Good pacing, fights mostly delivering. Two title fights to go. #PFLWorldChampionship

— Scott Fontana (@Scott_Fontana) November 26, 2022

Honestly had the main PPV card lineup not been 7…SEVEN…fights the $49 wouldve been fine. The event was built around Kayla Harrison. PFL didnt need to overbook it. #PFLWorldChampionship #MMA #PFL10

— Mikey Bats (@MikeJBknows) November 26, 2022

The good news for the PFL is that it gives them a fight to market for the next PPV

— Jason Floyd (@Jason_Floyd) November 26, 2022

Considering they built this thing around Kayla, that’s probably it for PFL PPV.

— Johnny T. (@MisterTightlips) November 26, 2022

That was a mostly fun card. Kudos to PFL PPV pacing, which was mostly pretty alright.

— Suzanne (@SoozieCuzie) November 26, 2022

This event has been a big success for PFL. If only they had made their next final PPV instead of this one,premature move.

— MMA watcher (@MMAwatcher5) November 26, 2022

RIP PFL ⚰ your first ever PPV was priced at 50 dollars with the face of the company suffering her first L in the main event. You had a good run but this is where it ends

PFL management watching their biggest star lose her 0 on the PPV that nobody bought #PFLWorldChampionship

— Shed Boy (@Callum_JN) November 26, 2022

What a massive disappointment. PFL has built EVERYTHING around Kayla and to get this performance in a PPV built around her is terrible. #PFLWorldChampionships
