Bucks pupils continue to make the grade
High standards for Key Stage Two
MORE than half of Key Stage Two pupils in Buckinghamshire reached the expected standards in reading, writing and maths, according to government figures.
Of Bucks students 63% achieved the standard, a number which compares favourably to the 61% recorded by pupils nationally, leaving primary school teachers delighted.
Across the county, this was a huge six per cent increase on last year’s figures, the first since the new, more challenging national curriculum was introduced in 2014.
In addition, 10% of pupils across Buckinghamshire reached the higher standard, up by three per cent on last year’s results.
Cabinet member for education and skills, Mike Appleyard said: “These are excellent results for the pupils and families in our schools.
“The continued success and hard work by staff and pupils across the county ensures that pupils in Buckinghamshire move on to their secondary schools with the skills they need to do well and to be successful in their future careers.
“Evidence shows that a good outcome from the primary school years has a direct impact on exam results in later life and for this reason we should be proud of the schools we have and celebrate, as we will with headteachers and governors, the excellent education pupils in Buckinghamshire schools receive.”
