Bromley’s primary schools can celebrate after achieving above the national average in their Key Stage 2 results.

Figures from the Department of Education published last week show 80 per cent of Bromley’s Key Stage 2 pupils, aged 11, achieved the expected Level 4 or above in their reading, writing and maths tests.

Seventy-five per cent of children across England reached the same level.

Cudham Church of England Primary School in Jail Lane, Biggin Hill, saw 100 per cent of its pupils attain Level 4 or above, as did Chislehurst (St Nicholas) Church of England Primary School in School Road, Chislehurst; Midfield Primary School in Grovelands Road, Orpington, and St James’ Roman Catholic Primary School in Maybury Close, Orpington.

Cllr Stephen Wells, Bromley Council’s executive Member for Education, said: “We are delighted Bromley’s primary schools have, as usual, outperformed others in England across the three subjects tested.

“A rounded education is the key to a fulfilling life and we believe this should be available for every single child in the borough.

“All young people deserve a first class education to suit their individual needs and talents and the local authority will continue to work with local schools to make sure that these aspirations are fulfilled.”
