TWO Mid Cheshire primary schools have come top of the class in the government’s latest Key Stage 2 national curriculum league tables.
The results, published by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, show the standards reached in tests in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science by pupils in their final year of primary school.
And youngsters at Crowton and Little Leigh have excelled themselves, with every single one reaching the expected level in every subject - putting the schools alongside the best in the county.
Both schools also recorded an impressive CVA (Contextual Value Added) score, which shows the improvement in pupils’ learning between key stages in their education.
Barnton and Davenham Primary Schools also impressed, both recording near-maximum aggregate scores of 294 - from a possible 300 - across three core subjects. St Bede's in Weaverham scored 290, and Victoria Road 289.
In Winsford, Over St John’s received the best aggregate score, 282, while St Joseph’s recorded 262.
Handley Hill Primary, which is set to close later this year, got one of the worst overall scores in the county, 145, while only 45% of its 188 pupils reached the required standard in English, and just 32% in Maths.
