We are delighted to note that Skyswood Primary School have achieved a place in the Times newspaper 150 top state schools in Britain. This is based purely on the average points score for end of Key Stage 2 SATS results and, although we are naturally delighted with the news, we recognise that this is just part of the picture in terms of what we aim to provide as a school. We particularly pride ourselves on our pupils’ behaviour and attitudes to learning, their respect for each other and the wonderful community ethos that exists at our school (these qualities can’t be measured quite as easily as SATS scores!)
Interestingly, although we are proud of the fact that our average points score for 2014 gives us a place in the top 150 British schools, the average points score for 2013 was even higher in Maths, Reading, Writing and SPAG (but we didn’t quite make the top 150 last year!)
We are naturally very proud of all our children, including those who performed so well at the end of KS2 over the past couple of years and are now excelling at their respective secondary schools. We are also extremely proud of our staff, who work particularly hard to ensure that all children have the opportunity to fulfil their potential across the breadth of the curriculum. Well done Skyswood!
