We were excited to receive a letter this morning from Right Honourable Nick Gibb MP, the Minister of State for School Standards celebrating our maths results for 2017 Year 6. The letter read:
Dear Mr. Kelly,
I would like to congratulate you, your staff and your pupils on your school’s very high standard of achievement in mathematics in the 2017 key stage 2 assessments.
Your school’s results, as published on 14th December, show that 100 per cent of your pupils reached or exceeded the expected standard in mathematics at the end of key stage 2. This means that your school is in the top 1% of primary schools in England for attainment in mathematics.
We want to ensure that every child has the necessary fluency in mathematics to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, and your school has provided this to all your pupils.
Thank you for your hard work and professionalism in producing such high standards and congratulations again to you and your staff for all you have achieved.
We are incredibly proud of all our children and their achievements both personally and academically, and whilst Year 6 SATs only measure and test a fraction of what our children are capable of it is wonderful to be recognised in this way. Congratulations to all of the teachers, teaching assistants and volunteers that worked with last years Y6s, but most of all congratulations to the children!
