Sparkling Results from Local Primaries
Best ever test scores for two Brentford Schools
Pupils, teachers and parents at two local schools will be celebrating an excellent set of results following the publication of the scores for this year's Key Stage 2 exams.
St. Paul's Church of England School and Our Lady and St. John Roman Catholic school achieved their best ever results. At St. Paul's 100% of pupils achieved the required level for science and its overall score made it one of the best in the borough. Not far behind was Our Lady and St. John which saw over 90% of its pupils reaching level 4 in each subject. On average 44% of tests taken by its pupils reached level 5 which is an attainment expected of 13 year olds.
Hounslow was ranked fourth in London (out of 32 boroughs) in terms of performance by the Department for Education and Skills in their Achievement and Assessment value-added (VA) tables. These measure the improvement in test scores of individual pupils in English, maths and science between Key Stage 1 (age 7) to Key Stage 2 (age 11) and are recognised as giving the best view of how effective a school is.
Cllr Dr Robert Kinghorn, Executive Member for Education Children at Hounslow Council said '“Everyone involved in education in the borough - heads, teachers, classroom assistants, support staff, and officers here at the Council - can take an enormous amount of pride from these results. These tables show what many parents in the borough already know from experience - that our primary schools provide a first class environment for pupils to achieve excellent results."
Judith Pettersen, the newly appointed Director of Children’s Services and Lifelong Learning at the London Borough Hounslow, said, “Performance in English and Maths is above the national average - breaking the 80 per cent barrier in English for the first time - and Science is equal to the national average."
