As the Government publishes the annual primary school performance tables schools across Lancashire are celebrating.

Despite the major controversy surrounding last May’s Sats Tests, latest data reveals that the county’s schools are still among some of the nation’s best.

The education authority is among the top third and the county boasts more good and outstanding schools than both the regional and national averages - especially at primary level.

However, it still has a clutch of underperforming schools but the percentages of pupils in schools that are not deemed to be good or outstanding are much lower than the national average.

Latest figures from OFSTED show that the vast majority of Lancashire’s children and young people are taught in schools that are either good or outstanding.

According to the statistics 95 per cent of Lancashire’s primary aged pupils attend schools judged to be good or outstanding, compared to the national average of 90 per cent, and to the North West average of 93 per cent.

The performance of primary school pupils in recent national tests has been praised by Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for children, young people and schools.

County Councillor Matthew Tomlinson said: “Once again, the Key Stage Two results are really pleasing.

“Our primary school children are doing well, above the national and regional average in the key areas of reading, writing and maths, which is definitely something we can be proud of.

“This shows what excellent work our schools are doing throughout the county. They have obviously got to grips with a new, and more demanding curriculum, and it is great to see Lancashire children performing so well.

“This is backed up by the latest Ofsted figures showing that 95% of Lancashire’s primary age pupils attend schools that have been judged to be good or outstanding, compared to the national average of 90%, and the North West average of 93%.

“Well done to all our children, and to their teachers, parents, and school governors. These results are a compliment to all their hard work.

Lancashire County Council staff support almost all of our primary schools and it is great to know that they are helping them to build such strong foundations for when pupils move on to secondary school.”
