  • Northern Education Trust KS2 results exceed national percentages Northern Education Trust KS2 results exceed national percentages

    Northern Education Trust is delighted to share the impressive news that our primary KS2 students have achieved tremendous results again this year. 72% of the cohort achieved the expected standard, or higher, for combined reading, writing and maths. This is compared against the national result of 59%. Of the entire cohort of 406 students across the trust, 60% are classed as disadvantaged (ie pupil premium students who receive free school meals), and 69% of those students achieved the expected standard, or higher, in reading, writing and maths combined. Given that some of these children live in the most deprived areas in the country, this is a remarkable achievement.

    Results in the separate subjects of reading, writing and maths are equally notable:

    • 76% achieved the expected standard or higher in reading, compared against 73% nationally.
    • 80% achieved the expected standard or higher in writing, compared with 71% nationally.
    • 83% achieved the expected standard or higher in maths, compared with 73% nationally.

    Several academies are particularly pleased with their results:

    • Badger Hill Primary Academy in Brotton saw 93% achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined, with 93% and 97% achieving the expected standard or higher in writing and maths respectively. In reading, 100% of students achieved the expected standard or higher, with a magnificent 80% achieving greater depth.
    • Frederick Nattrass Primary Academy in Stockton saw 89% achieve at least the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined.
    • Mount Pellon Primary Academy in Halifax saw 64% of students achieving at the expected standard in all three subjects – the first time that the academy has achieved higher than the national percentage (59% this year).

    Deputy Chief Executive Jane Wilson said: “We are tremendously pleased with the results this year. Everyone has worked extremely hard to ensure that our students have caught up on any remaining lost learning due to the pandemic. These results are testament to the efforts and determination of staff, families and of course, the students, to continue to learn and progress. The excellent achievements of our students means that they move into the next stage of their education with the best possible foundation. This will enable them to reach their potential and will ultimately enhance their life chances.”
