Bexley’s primary schools pupils can celebrate after achieving above the national average in their Key Stage 2 results.

Figures from the Department of Education published yesterday show that eighty-one per cent of Bexley’s Key Stage 2 pupils, aged 11, achieved the expected Level 4 or above in their reading, writing and maths tests.

90 per cent made the expected progress in reading, 91 per cent in maths and 95 per cent in writing.

Seventy-five per cent of children across England reached Level 4 or above.

High achieving schools include Dulverton Primary School in Dulverton Road, Sidcup, which saw 95 per cent of pupils reach Level 4; St John Fisher Catholic Primary in Kale Road, Erith, where 100 per cent of its pupils hit those marks and 98 per cent of pupils at Upland Primary school pupils in Church Road, Bexleyheath, achieved the same.

Bexley Council cabinet member for education, Cllr John Fuller, said: “We have been working hard with our schools over the past year as part of the council’s Education Change Programme.

“Their co-operation and partnership work has made the programme such a success and has helped to produce these great results. I thank them all for their involvement and support.”
