Success for All
In 2016 the tests were much more difficult than in previous years. The children were assessed, for the first time, against the new national curriculum.
The tests were very challenging, but here at Valley Road, we still managed to remain above the national averages for all tests. This was an amazing achievement and shows how talented our children are, and how lucky we are to have such dedicated successful pupils.
The schools most recent Key Stage 2 results for 2016:
69.4% achieved Level 4 or above in Reading, Writing and Maths combined
6% achieved the higher level of attainment in Reading, Writing and Maths combined
The average progress score in Reading was 1.44 which places us in the top 40% of the country
