Camden’s primary schools are among the best in the country for teaching children reading, writing and mathematics, according to figures released today.

More than 85 per cent of 11-year-olds at the borough’s primary schools achieved a good standard in the three Rs this year, smashing the government’s target of 65 per cent.

The local authority was ranked fifth best in England for pupils achieving a Level 4 or above in their SATS exams this year - the standard expected of an 11-year-old.

Christ Church Primary School in Christchurch Hill, Hampstead, topped the borough’s own league table, with 100 per cent of children achieving Level 4 or above.

The school also recorded 100 per cent of children making at least two levels of progress between the ages of seven and 11.

Nationally, the number of primaries failing to give their pupils a good grounding in the three Rs has remained static this year, despite schools facing tougher government targets,

To meet government standards, schools must ensure that at least 65 per cent of 11-year-olds reach Level 4 in reading, writing and mathematics, and meet national averages in pupil progress.
