parents fines for absent pupils - primary school pupils and SATs exams

Nantwich and Crewe primary pupils have achieved an impressive set of Key Stage 2 results across core subjects.

Cheshire East Council says provisional figures show 64% of pupils achieved the expected standard or higher for combined reading, writing and maths at the end of school year, which is the key measure used nationally.

This figure for Cheshire East is up 12% on the previous year, with the national figure rising by 8%.

A total of 76% of pupils achieved the expected standard or higher in maths for the national curriculum test – a rise of 4% on last year.

Similar improvements have been seen in English, with 76% of pupils achieving the expected standard or better in the reading test (a rise 5%), with grammar, punctuation and spelling moving up from 76% to 80%.

Overall, the performance across Cheshire East for 2017 is above the national average for all curriculum test indicators.

Cllr George HAYESCllr George Hayes (pictured, right) Cheshire East Council cabinet member for children and families, said: “I am delighted that outcomes for our primary school students across the borough have demonstrated a positive trend, which equips these young people well for their continued education in secondary school – particularly given the increased rigour in the Key Stage 2 assessments.

“We already know we have some excellent schools and pupils in our communities but, even so, there are some very impressive results this year.

“I recognise the substantial work which has been undertaken this year in trying to embed new primary assessment frameworks, especially in the assessment of writing, and this hard work is reflected in these very positive outcomes across all assessed subjects.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those family members, teachers and schools staff who have worked so very hard to support our pupils and also the young people themselves, who are maintaining such a high success rate in Cheshire East.”
