Key Stage 2 education results in Oxfordshire primary schools remain the same
11:13am Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
THE proportion of Oxfordshire children achieving benchmark levels in their last year at primary school has remained the same, new figures reveal.
For the first time this year, school and pupil performance in Key Stage 2 tests taken at age 11 is being assessed on the proportion of children achieving a Level 4 or higher in reading, writing and maths.
Previously, it was judged on those achieving the grade in English and maths.
Of the 6,029 county pupils assessed this summer, 77 per cent were at Level 4 or above in the three subjects, the same percentage as in 2012.
It remains slightly above the national average, which was 76 per cent for all England schools.
A new test in grammar, punctuation and spelling was also introduced, with 73 per cent of county youngsters achieving Level 4 in the new assessment compared with 74 per cent nationally.
