THE CITY’S children are performing above average according to the primary school league tables published this week to revealing the borough’s best and worst performing schools.

The Department for Education publishes the annual tables detailing the performance of every school in the country based on the results of the Key Stage Two SATs ­— taken by Year Six pupils to test their reading, writing and maths.

They provide a snapshot of how well each school is performing and tracks pupils’ progress.

The aim is to hold schools to account and to give parents a way of comparing schools in their areas.

There were 49 schools in the Brighton and Hove City Council area that submitted results.

The numbers of children mastering the 3Rs in Brighton’s schools has dipped slightly but the level of progress they make is above average, data released by the Government shows.

The city’s overall result fell by one per cent, while the country’s average rose by one per cent.

This year, 67 per cent of children left primary school having achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, a fall of one percent on last year, when Brighton beat the country’s average by two points.

But the progress children make during their time at school in all subjects is above average.


This score show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of Key Stage One and the end of Key Stage Two, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage One.

And the number of children achieving at a higher standard rose by one per cent to 11 per cent, again in line with the country’s average.

Writing was the strongest subject with 80 per cent of children achieving the benchmark compared to 78 per cent nationally, the maths result was in line with the national average of 79 per cent and reading levels fell below the national average, with a score of 71 per cent compared to 73 per cent nationally.
