MP congratulates ‘stellar’ pupil results

Kingswood pupils have been congratulated on their Key Stage 2 results by their local Member of Parliament.

2019 Key Stage 2 results of local primary schools have recently been published and schools have seen an increase in the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics from last year.

This year’s results are the fourth since the Government introduced more rigorous assessments to align with the new national curriculum in 2016, which has brought England’s primary education in line with the best in the world. Each year, more children are meeting the high expectations it sets.

There are 11 out of 26 primary schools in Kingswood which have seen a significant increase.

 

Kingswood MP and Government Minister Chris Skidmore said:

“I really want to congratulate our local schools for such stellar results which are thanks to the hard work of pupils, their parents, headteachers, teaching staff and governors.

It is extremely positive news to see the results showing an increase in the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics as compared to 2018.

We know that young people’s progress in reading, writing and mathematics is critical to their success at secondary school and beyond, and I am delighted to see schools providing our pupils with a very good start and preparing them well for the next stage in their education.”
