SATs and Key Data

All children in a state school in England complete key assessments throughout their time at school.
The outcome of these standard attainment tests (SATs) for children at The Lea can be found here (league tables) and on the link below:

Note, due to Covid-19 the Government will not be publishing any school educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for the 2019/20 school year.

Our 2018/19 KS2 SATs results show a 96% level of attainment. These results included 100% of pupils attaining an age-related expectation in maths and in reading.

Our 2019 Year 6 SATs results place The Lea as the highest attaining primary school in Harpenden and in the top 6 across the whole of Hertfordshire.

We are most pleased to see that this success has not come through excessive ‘revision’ or at the cost of limiting learning in the wider curriculum but rather from a more reflective and progressive approach to the teaching of the core subjects and an unbreakable belief that every child can achieve.  We could not be prouder of the children and all of those involved.

These scores above show how much progress pupils at The Lea made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.

These progress scores place The Lea in the top 3% of  primary schools in the entire country.


We are always proud of how our children perform academically from a range of starting points and we strive for all our children to reach their full potential.
