Impressive SATs results for primary school students
Pupils across West Sussex are celebrating success in their SATs tests this year.
Overall 80% of 10 and 11 year olds in the county achieved Level 4 in English and 78% in maths.
Level 4 is the expected level for this age group.
In fact 75 primary schools in West Sussex scored higher than 80% for English, while the number of schools boasting above 80% for maths is 68.
Arundel C of E Primary is the top achieving school in the county, where 100% of pupils achieved Level 4 in both subjects.
Arundel is closely followed by St Giles C of E Primary School, Haywards Heath, and Stedham Primary School, Midhurst.
Cabinet Member for Education and Schools, Peter Griffiths said: “Eighty per cent is a good figure, the same in fact as last year. Both pupils and teachers should be proud of their achievements.
“The council does recognise however, that this year’s league table does not give a full picture because a number of schools opted for Teacher Assessments instead of the National Curriculum tests, where the teachers formally assess their pupils’ performance.
“This has made it difficult to make meaningful comparisons with historical data.”
Teacher Assessments are robustly reviewed and these results are shared with parents and the schools that children are transferring to.
