East Riding primary schools celebrate Key Stage 2 success

Thu, 13 Dec 2018

East Riding Primary schools have built upon previous success by increasing the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics.

The primary school performance tables announced today (Thursday December 13) show 64% of East Riding pupils achieved the expected standard in all three subjects, an increase from 61% last year and in line with the national figure. New, more challenging assessments for 11-year-olds were introduced in 2016.

Councillor Julie Abraham, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s portfolio holder for children, young people and education, said: “We are very proud of achieving continued improvement in outcomes for children in the East Riding.

“Schools across the local authority have collectively responded to the increased level of expectation set within the national tests. These excellent outcomes show how East Riding schools are continually striving to produce the best possible results and prepare their pupils so well for secondary school”
