Laura Mayes, cabinet member for children services, said: “I’m very pleased to see that the number of our young people leaving primary school with a sound understanding of the core subjects has increased. These results underline the commitment and hard work of both pupils and schools supported by the council and I’d like to congratulate all involved.”
Performance tables from the Department for Education released today (December 11) show an increase in the number of 11-year-olds achieving level 4 in all three core subjects in Wiltshire.
In the reading test, 90% of pupils achieved the expected level 4 and above, with 89% achieving this for writing. In the maths test, 85% of pupils gained level 4 and above and there was an increased proportion of pupils gaining the expected levels in all of reading, writing and maths at 78%; an increase of 2% from last year.
Even greater numbers of Wiltshire’s pupils are making expected progress in their literacy and numeracy skills from age 7 to the end of their primary school education at 11 years. In reading, 92% of Wiltshire pupils made expected progress, an increase of 2% from 2013. Proportions making expected progress in writing (94%) and maths (90%) continue to rise from the 2013 figures. Nearly a quarter of pupils (24%) gained the higher level 5 and above in all reading, writing and maths.
