Record results for Calderdale Key Stage 2 pupils in all subjects

Child Learning

Key Stage 2 pupils in Calderdale schools have achieved record high results in every subject, according to figures released by the Department for Education (DfE).

The provisional figures found that children had not only achieved a record high of children working at Level 4 or above (the expected level of achievement at the end of primary education), but they also beat the national average in every single area.

The areas measured were spelling and punctuation, grammar, reading, writing and mathematics. And in each of these areas, Calderdale children improved on their performance from last year.

In reading, writing and mathematics the results improved from 72% achieving Level 4 or above in 2013, to 75.1% achieving the same level this year.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, Cllr Megan Swift, said: “It’s great news that Calderdale schools are consistently performing above the national average at Key Stage 2.

“These fantastic figures are the result of the dedication and hard work of pupils, teachers and parents, and I’d like to congratulate them all for their efforts.”
