TAMESIDE primary schools have once again increased the number of pupils achieving well at Key Stage 2 (KS2).
Provisional KS2 results for 2018 show that 63% of Tameside pupils achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths – an increase of 3% on 2017. The provisional national average is 64%.
Tameside Council Executive Member for Lifelong Learning Cllr Leanne Feeley said: “Well done to Tameside primary schools and pupils - these provisional results represent a lot of hard work and dedication from children, teaching staff, governors and parents.
“The improved results have been no easy feat in a climate of more challenging curriculums. And, although it would be great to close the gap on the national average - being just 1% off is still a great achievement given the demographic of our borough, which has higher than average levels of social and economic deprivation.
“We will continue to work with schools to ensure they can build on this success to ensure further improvement and do everything they can to help pupils make good progress and achieve their best.”
