Chorleywood Primary School (CPS) 2018 KS2 results in reading, writing and maths have put them in the top one per cent in the country.
97 per cent of 120 CPS KS2 pupils met the expected standard score of 100 or more in their reading and maths tests.
The results saw them get the fourth best results out of all primary schools and colleges in Hertfordshire.
Headteacher of the school, Rebecca Roberts, said she is “deeply proud” of her students and staff for their amazing efforts that they display on a daily basis.
She said: “We are delighted and deeply proud of the achievements of the pupils. They worked really hard and they deserve all the credit that they get.
“I’m in awe of my teachers. They are hard-working, committed and they go above and beyond my expectations and do everything for their pupils to get the results they deserve.”
Rebecca outlined that this achievement was not a goal set out by the school, but the school aims for every student to reach the standards or above.
She added: “We aim for all our students to reach the standards and above. We have a long time to work with our students and it’s all about making sure both teachers and pupils are invested.
“It’s all about having high expectations for all pupils. Knowing the students and personalising their learning is a policy that we stand by. It’s not always about the individuals that are doing well, we help the ones that are struggling also.”
The school has followed up on the 2017 KS2 results where they were placed in the top one per cent of primary schools in the UK for their achievement in reading.
Ofsted’s 2018 report of the school outlined that the school “provide(s) clear direction, which creates a strong sense of community and purpose which motivates staff and pupils to achieve very well.”
