Cambridgeshire primary school tables 2019: How did yours do?
The Icknield Primary in Sawston, Dry Drayton C of E Primary and Histon & Impington Junior School are among the top performing schools in the county, new data shows.
Other top performing schools including King’s Hedges Primary and The Spinney Primary School in Cambridge, and Babraham C of E Primary School.
The tables are based on how 11-year-olds in each school performed in national curriculum tests – or SATS – taken at the end of primary school.
They provide a snapshot of how well each school is performing and tracks pupils’ progress.
Schools are ranked on the percentage of pupils meeting the expected standard, as well as progress scores in reading, writing and maths. If pupils progress by the expected amount in a subject, the school achieves a zero. Positive scores indicate better than average progress, while negative scores indicate below average progress.
The data also looks at the percentage of pupils achieving at a higher standard and average scores in reading and maths.
The information, which was published by the Department for Education on Friday (December 13), aims to hold schools to account and give parents a way of comparing schools in their areas.
Anneka Stockdale, headteacher at The Icknield Primary School in Sawston, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be one of the top performing schools in Cambridgeshire for overall performance.
“As a school, we work so hard to make learning as memorable and exciting for our pupils as we can and to receive this recognition in our data is very exciting.
“We couldn’t be prouder of our pupils and the staff who give everything to make our school such a great place to learn and work.”
A total of 86 per cent of pupils at the village primary met the expected standard and it received well above average progress scores in both reading and maths.
Dry Drayton Primary also had 86 per cent of pupils meeting the expected standard, with a well above-average progress score in reading.
King’s Hedges Primary achieved well above average in all three assessed areas of reading, writing and maths – and 84 per cent of pupils achieved the expected standard.
Below is the full table, which you can search by school name.
SUPP in the table means suppressed. In certain circumstances the Department of Education will suppress an establishment’s data. This is usually when there are five or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure.
