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.”
