Best Ever Results
Primary Schools in Hull are celebrating their best ever Key State Two results. The excellent level of results has also lead to Hull topping the charts for Yorkshire and the Humber.
Results released today by the Department for Education (DfE) showed a huge improvement in the city. Last year’s results showed 53% of children achieving an expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths. The results were in line with the rest of the country’s level at the time. However this year primary schools in the city achieved an amazing 63%.
Council’s Response To Results
Councillor Phil Webster, the Portfolio Holder for Learning, Skills, and Safeguarding Children said about the results:
I am delighted to see the Key Stage 2 results improve and be the best ever for the city as well as topping the regional league table.
We are now above the national average. Attainment in Hull primary schools continues to rise at a rate faster than national, which is down to the hard work and dedication of teachers and school staff, as well as children and their families.
This is a really positive picture of improvement for the city and I am confident we can continue with this direction of travel and improve further.
We remain committed to ensuring our young people of today develop the very best skills, aspirations and opportunities to ensure they have a vibrant future for when they reach secondary school.
