All children in a state school in England complete key assessments throughout their time at school.
The most recent outcome of these standard attainment tests (SATs) for our pupils are as follows:
Please note that due to Covid-19, the Government did not publish any school educational performance data for the 2019/20 or 2020/21 school years.
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. These results place The Lea as the highest attaining primary school in Harpenden, and in the top 6 across the whole of Hertfordshire.
We are delighted 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.
