PROVISIONAL Key Stage 2 results for primary school leavers are continuing to improve.
Standard Assessment Test (SATs) results for 2013, show that Hampshire has improved standards in reading, writing and mathematics.
Of the children currently in Year 6 at primary school, the percentage of those achieving the nationally expected level 4 in maths, reading and writing has reached 78 per cent – up one per cent from last year and eight per cent from 2011.
Councillor Peter Edgar, executive member for education at Hampshire County Council, said: ‘This is an excellent set of results and reflects the high standards our children, teachers and local authority staff work to achieve.
‘The results mean that those children, about to embark on their secondary education, will have a strong foundation to build upon.
‘Children currently in Year 6 should be very proud of their achievement which is testament to the hard work of the teaching staff and the high quality of teaching in this county that I have had the pleasure of seeing first-hand.’
