Primary pupils in Crewe and Nantwich have helped Cheshire East achieve improved end of key stage results in 2018.

From the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage through to the end of Key Stage 2, schools across the borough have produced outcomes where 18 out of the 21 national indicators have improved in 2018 compared to last year.

The other three indicators remained unchanged.

One of the key achievements at the end of Key Stage Two this year was in the reading test.

81% of pupils attained the expected standard or higher – which is 5% above last year’s figure.

In writing, 80% achieved the expected standard, a rise of 4% on the previous year.

One of the key national indicators is combined outcomes in reading, writing and maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

In 2018, results showed 67% of learners achieved the expected level or better, compared with 64% in the previous year.

Provisional national data shows Cheshire East is 3% above the figure for all schools in England.

Cllr Jos Saunders (pictured), Cheshire East Council cabinet member for children and families, said: “I believe primary national curriculum tests are a really challenging experience for every young learner and I am delighted that the young people of Cheshire East have excelled in them.

“We already know we have many excellent schools achieving very high learner outcomes but, even so, the consistency of these results across all key stages is hugely impressive and pleasing.

“I recognise the substantial work which has been undertaken over recent years to embed new primary assessment frameworks and this hard work is reflected in these very positive outcomes.

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