PRIMARY school pupils in Gloucestershire have once again gained excellent results in national tests for 11-year-olds.
Figures show that Gloucestershire is in the top third of councils nationally in this year’s provisional key stage two results.
More than 77 per cent of pupils achieved the expected level four or above in reading, writing and maths, compared to a national average of 75.1 per cent.
Gloucestershire County Councillor Paul McLain, cabinet member for children and young people, said: “It is fantastic news that once again Gloucestershire’s results are among the very best in the country and the south west.
“It is so important that children leave primary schools being able to read, write and do maths at the right level for their age so they can do well at secondary school and give themselves the best possible chance of moving on to further education, training or finding a good job.”
