100% commitment to every child's bright future
The whole school celebrated at the end of last term, when Year 6 achieved an excellent 100% result in their national Standard Assessment Tests (known as SATs).
All primary school children take Key Stage 2 SATs at the end of Year 6. They sit tests in Mathematics, Reading and Writing, as well as a recently introduced paper covering Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. The Government considers Level 4 to be the attainment target for children starting secondary school.
Across the whole country, an average of 81% of Year 6 children achieved this target in all of their KS2 SATS. But this year every single child in Year 6 at Marlborough Primary School achieved Level 4 or better in every single test.
Headteacher Mrs Drozdowskij said: “Our school motto, taken from Malala Yousafzai’s speech to the UN, is ‘For Every Child’s Bright Future’, and we really mean every child. We are relentless in pursuing our ambitions for our pupils, no matter what the challenges – and they have responded wonderfully with these excellent results. We work hard, have high aspirations and a passion for teaching. I’m delighted to see those qualities reflected in our pupils’ achievements. Their futures really are bright.”
This remarkable success even made it into the local press. You can read the Harrow Times coverage by clicking this link. Further details of the results are available here.
