Nailsea school tops latest tables

THE latest performance tables for primary schools have been released this week, with children at a Nailsea school topping the list in North Somerset.

The tables have been produced using the results from Key Stage Two exams which were taken by 11-year-olds in England in May.

The subjects covered by the tests were English, reading, writing and maths.

Golden Valley Primary School in Nailsea Park, Nailsea, proved the most successful in North Somerset, with its pupils achieving the highest average point score of 31.

St Francis Primary School in Station Road, Nailsea, came a close second with an average point score of 30.3.

All pupils who took the tests at Golden Valley are also shown to be making the expected progress in both maths and English.

Golden Valley Primary School headteacher Kevin Lynch said: “We are delighted with the results and outcomes of Golden Valley which reflect the hard work of the children and staff. We’re really proud of everyone’s achievements.
