Theresa congratulates local primary schools

  • 10 Dec 2007

Theresa May MP has congratulated primary schools in the Maidenhead constituency following the publication of the 2007 Key Stage 2 Achievement and Attainment Tables.

The data shows that of the 25 local schools that reported results, 19 scored above the national average for England for Key Stage 2. Maidenhead constituency’s average point score was also higher than the English national average. The results also included a Contextual Value Added measure which showed the progress made by pupils from the end of Key Stage 1 to the end of Key Stage 2.

Theresa said, “I warmly congratulate all the primary schools that have achieved successful Key Stage 2 results. It is greatly encouraging to see that results in the Maidenhead constituency are above the national average for England.”

“I particularly congratulate Cookham Dean Church of England Primary School which recorded the highest average point score in the area, and White Waltham Church of England School which achieved the highest Contextual Added Value score.”

“However, there is still much more that needs to be done to ensure good education for all our children. Britain has fallen in international rankings for literacy and numeracy and the Government has admitted that it’s failed to meet its targets for 11 year olds. We must give teachers more powers to restore order in schools and get back to tried and tested reading methods – and if we do this I am sure that we can see even better results in Maidenhead and the local area.”
