Six of the area’s primary schools rank among the best 1,000 in England, according to figures released today.

The rankings released on Thursday by the Department for Education (DfE) are based on the percentage of 11-year-old pupils who achieve a good standard in the three Rs – reading, writing and mathematics.

Camden’s primaries are once again among the best in the country after the borough ranked eighth in England for performance. On average, 86 per cent of pupils in Camden achieved Level 4 in their SATs exams last academic year – the government standard that is expected of an 11-year-old. It smashes the government’s target of ensuring that at least 65 per cent of pupils achieve Level 4.

Camden’s cabinet member for children Cllr Angela Mason said: “This is a fantastic achievement, which is a result of the hard work of our teachers, pupils and the support of their parents.”

In neighbouring Haringey, 82 per cent of pupils achieved the standard, while in Barnet, 84 per cent scored Level 4.

Top schools include Kingsgate Primary School in West Hampstead, where 100 per cent of pupils achieved the government benchmark. It ranked 13th in the country based on average point score per pupil.

Kingsgate headteacher Liz Hayward said: “We were very proud to again achieve such excellent results in 2015.

“Kingsgate Primary School has an incredibly dedicated staff and a fantastic community with high aspirations for their children.”

Weston Park Primary School in Crouch End saw a huge jump in the percentage of pupils scoring Level 4, from 81 per cent in 2014 to 100 per cent this year.

Weston Park headteacher Nic Hunt said: “It’s fantastic for us and a huge achievement for our dedicated staff team.”

He added: “Many children fall under categories like special educational needs, disadvantaged, or English as a second language so it’s a real success for us.”

But some schools saw a fall in pupils achieving the government standard this year. Christ Church School in Hampstead saw a slight drop from first place last year to ninth position in the Ham&High’s league table, with 93 per cent scoring Level 4 compared with 100 per cent last year.

And oversubscribed Eleanor Palmer School in Kentish Town slid down the league tables, after 86 per cent of pupils achieved a good standard in the three Rs compared with 93 per cent last year.

Only one school in the are failed to meet the government’s target of ensuring at least 65 per cent score Level 4; St Michael’s CofE Primary School in Camden Town.

Eleanor Palmer and St Michael’s primary schools did not respond to repeated requests for comment by the Ham&High.
