Parents of pupils in primary schools across the Louth and Mablethorpe areas can see how their child’s schools measure up amongst other across the country in the latest school leagues tables.
The figures, released by the Department of Education on Thursday, represent the percentage of pupils achieving Level 4 or above in both English and maths in the year six exams.
Across our coverage area three schools achieved the maximum 100 per cent, North Cockerington Church of England Primary School, North Cotes CofE Primary School and The St Margaret’s Church of England School, Withern.
Within Louth itself St Michael’s Church of England School was the top performer, with 90 per cent of pupils achieving Level 4 or above in both core subjects.
Some schools locally achieved marked improvements on their 2011 scores, with St Margaret’s Church of England School in Withern achieving 100 per cent, a huge 62 per cent up on last year’s score of 38 per cent.
Notable mentions must also go to East Wold Church of England Primary School, Legbourne who scored 94 per cent this year, up on last year’s 69 per cent, and Grainthorpe School who achieved 78 per cent, up from 43 per cent.
Mablethorpe Community Primary and Nursery School, who have since become Mablethorpe Primary Academy, scored 14 per cent more than last year with 63 per cent.
Under tough new measures, schools where fewer than 60 per cent of pupils achieve at least the expected Level 4, and are down on progress measures for English and maths, are deemed to be ‘below the floor’.
A Department for Education spokesman said: “This Government brought in higher primary school floor targets with one aim in mind – to drive up standards with immediate effect to end years of chronic underperformance.
The figures demonstrate that schools have responded to the challenge. The floor standards we introduced were tougher and have improved performance. Heads, teachers and pupils deserve credit for meeting the challenge head on.
“Schools with a long history of underperformance, and who are not stepping up to the mark, face being taken over by an Academy sponsor.
“The expertise and strong leadership provided by sponsors is the best way to turn around weak schools and give pupils there the best chance of a first-class education.”
