A total of 14 primary schools in Northamptonshire saw every eligible pupil meet the minimum Government standard for reading, writing and maths.

The results came from the national primary school league tables, which showed the proportion of pupils attaining the minimum standard of Level 4 in the three disciplines, along with the schools’ level 5 results.

The tables, published today, showed that 14 of 249 schools saw every pupil, who was eligible for it, achieve Level 4.

The schools were:

-Boughton Primary School

-Chipping Warden Primary Academy

-Collingtree C of E Primary School

-Cranford C of E Primary School

-East Haddon C of E Primary School

-Greens Norton C of E Primary School

-Hackleton C of E Primary School

-Isham C of E Primary School

-Milton Parochial School

-Ringstead Church of England Primary School

-St Loys C of E Primary Academy, in Weedon Lois

-Wilby C of E Primary School

-Yardley Hastings Primary School

A further 30 schools across the county saw more than 90 per cent of eligible pupils attain Level 4.

According to the Government, Level 4 indicates they can spell properly, start to use grammatically-complex sentences and employ joined-up handwriting in English.

In maths, it showed they were able to multiply and divide whole numbers by 10 or 100 and use simple fractions and percentages.

Schools are now expected to ensure 65 per cent of pupils achieve Level 4 or above in reading, writing, and maths or satisfy separate pupil progress requirements.
