St Mary’s top league in primary tests (and a disaster for the Gateway Free School)

OFSTED has published the reading, writing and maths tables for primary schools in Thurrock.

All schools are supposed to ensure that 60 per cent of pupils gain at least “Level 4” in formal reading and maths tests, combined with an informal teacher assessment of children’s writing abilities.

This means that Lansdowne, Purfleet and Benyon have failed to achieve the government target.

Level 4 indicates that students can start to use grammatically complex sentences, good spelling and joined up handwriting in English. In maths, they should multiply and divide whole numbers by 10 or 100 and be able to use simple fractions and percentages.

There is also a table for Level 5, which indicates how many students are above average.  Topping that table on 30% is Woodside Academy, Harris Academy , Tudor Court and St Mary’s.

At the bottom of that league is Thameside Primary and Purfleet Primary  on 2%, Lansdowne, Kenningtons, Corringham and Horndon on 6% and the  much-lauded Gateway Free School on 7%.
