The borough’s top performing school in all areas at Key Stage 2 was Halewood Church of England Primary – where a staggering 92.9% of this year’s Year 6 achieved the expected standard in all the areas covered by the SATs – Reading, Writing and Maths.
In addition, the school outperformed the national average for pupils achieving the highest possible grade of ‘Greater Depth’ in all three areas too. Nationally only 11% of pupils achieve this very demanding standard but at Halewood Cof E Primary an incredible 32% did so.
Headteacher Dave Smith said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive these results and want to pay tribute to the whole school staff team who work so hard to ensure that all our children get the best possible start to their education.
“This can only happen when the whole school community works together for the common good. Governors, parents and children all pulling in the same direction. We are immensely proud of our children, their progress and the well-rounded young people they have become, ready to start the next exciting chapter of their lives.”
