‘Room for improvement’ as nearly half of all Slough primaries perform worse than national average

Slough children at Key Stage 2 level are performing above the national average, according to figures released by the government last week.  But the figures mask disappointing results for nearly half of all primaries reporting results.

The latest Key Stage 2 results ranked Slough 63rd out of 152 local authorities, compared to 116th last year.  The results put Slough 2% above the national average – an improvement on last year’s results, which placed Slough at 2% below the national average.  A specific indicator also ranked Slough 14th for working above the expected standard in reading, writing and maths.

However, it was not all good news, and some very poor results were masked by excellent results in a handful of Slough schools.  Of the 27 schools in Slough for which results are available in the league table, 12 performed below the average for England.

There were mixed results for Colnbrook’s two schools.

Pippins saw 54% of its pupils attaining the expected standard in reading, writing and maths – against the average for England of 53%.  Colnbrook Primary saw 33% reach the expected level.  However, it did see results in writing and grammar that were better than the national average.

Nevertheless the Council said the figures were good news.

Councillor Sabia Hussain, deputy leader and commissioner for education and children’s services, said:

“These new style tests have proven to be much more rigorous than previous years, and these results show our schools have made tremendous strides over the past 12 months.

“I would like congratulate our children on their achievements and our teachers for their hard work.

“I also want to thank our schools, head teachers, teachers, parents and governors for their dedication to improving results for our children and ensuring they are getting off to the best possible start in life.”
