The Secretary of State for Education has praised a Wolverhampton school for outstanding performance at Key Stage 2.

 

The Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP, along with Minister of State for School Standards Nick Gibb MP, wrote to SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Academy School Headteacher Jenny Byrne after the school was ranked one of best in England for the progress made by children between Key Stages 1 and 2.

 

Pupils recorded progress scores of 4.4, 3.3 and 5.0 in English, writing and mathematics respectively, putting the Hordern Close school among the top 3% of schools in the country in terms of progress from Key Stage 1 to 2.

 

They wrote: "We would like to congratulate you, your staff and your pupils on the very high level of progress that pupils demonstrated in the reading, writing and mathematics Key Stage 2 assessments last year.

 

"We want to equip every child with the fluency in reading, writing and mathematics necessary to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, and your school has provided this.

 

“Thank you for producing such high standards through your hard work and professionalism, and congratulations again to you and your staff for all you have achieved."

 

Mrs Byrne said: "I am very proud of this statistic; our pupils have excelled themselves in reading, writing and mathematics. For our children, staff and parents, it’s good recognition for their dedication and hard work.”

 

Councillor Lynne Moran, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: "We are determined to further raise standards of education for children and young people in Wolverhampton, and for more schools to achieve fantastic results like this.

 

"It is great to see the efforts of teachers, pupils and parents at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Academy recognised by the Secretary of State for Education in this way, and I would like to congratulate the children on their outstanding progress between Key Stages 1 and 2."
