SCHOOLS in Ellesmere Port have not reported any problems following the late delivery of SATs results, says the county council.
Thousands of children across England, aged 11 and 14, are still waiting for the results of Standard Assessment Tests in English, maths and science.
And several schools that have received SATs papers have discovered that some have been returned unmarked, with pupils wrongly recorded as absent for the tests.
But a county council spokeswoman said there had been no problems reported in Cheshire, with all schools now receiving results, despite a slight delay.
SATs are national curriculum tests which all children in England are required to sit by the government at the end of “key stages” in their education.
Key Stage 2 papers are taken by primary school pupils when they are aged 10 or 11, and Key Stage 3, are taken by 13 or 14 year-olds after three years in secondary school.
They are administered by the National Assessment Agency, which is part of the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, who award a tests marking contract to an external awarding body or exam board.
The current markers are US company ETS Europe, which was forced to delay the delivery of results .
An inquiry has been launched into what caused the hold-up and why some results have still not been delivered.
Schools Secretary Ed Balls has described the situation as “unacceptable”.
