Weston’s MP John Penrose has congratulated teaching staff, students, parents and Governors from local primary schools for their hard work in improving the Key Stage 2 results achieved by 11 year-olds.
Last year the standards which are expected in Key Stage 2 tests went up, making tests tougher. This month, The Department of Education revealed that 11 year olds in 19 local primary schools had significantly improved their results compared to last year.
John said: “Key stage 2 tests have become tougher in recent years, to make sure local students have skills which are at least as good as pupils from anywhere in the world, and so they’ll be able to grab global opportunities by working anywhere they want when they’re older. It’s great to see so many schools rising to the challenge, and giving our children international choices and exciting futures.”
