Pupils achieve top class SATs results
92% gain level 4 or more at highly rated academy
A SCHOOL is celebrating after recording its strongest ever SATs results.
Denham Green E-Act Primary Academy has received the results from the May exams, with 92 per cent of pupils achieving at least a level four in English and Maths.
The figures show a 17 per cent increase on the Academy’s results last year and a further 13 per cent increase on last year’s national average, which was 79 per cent.
The school’s progress in reading, writing and maths is also above the national average, and follows a strong Ofsted report earlier this year, in which the school was given a Good rating.
School principal Sarah English said “We are incredibly proud of these results. It is a great achievement and a big congratulations has to go firstly to the pupils and their hard work.
“They have been a credit to themselves and their school.
“At Denham Green we have worked hard to introduce a number of positive changes at the Academy and instil a sense of aspiration in the students through the staff and teachers.
“This was picked up on by the Ofsted inspectors earlier in the year, and has been reflected in the results we have seen this year.
“The response to these results, changes and the recent Ofsted inspection from the local community has been very supportive and we are seeing a significant increase in the number of children wishing to join the Academy.”
The school has also been congratulated by E-Act chief executive David Moran.
He said: “I am absolutely delighted that Denham Green has performed so well.
“The academy is one of our top performers across the E-ACT trust and testament to the incredible hard work and dedication of Sarah English and her team.
“Many congratulations to all of our pupils who have done so well – these results will stand them in good stead as they move from primary to secondary education.”
