Blue Coat Pupils Achieve Top 10 SATs Success

test clipart test clipart 9As national performance tables become available for the public to peruse, it's notable that Blue Coat appears prominently for both pupil attainment and progress.

With the ability to compare schools within the Local Authority, the tables show that a highly significant 89% of Blue Coat's Year 6 pupils achieved the Expected Standard in Reading, Writing and Maths last summer. This ranks our school as ninth in Gloucestershire. Furthermore, only 2 similarly-sized schools sit above Blue Coat, with the others having far smaller pupil populations.

The school's staff have been working hard to adjust to the new assessment regime that was introduced 3 years ago. Since this time, the school has observed a 3-year upward trend with headline progress measures now deemed as 'Above Average' in English, and a significantly improving measure for Maths (the school's improvement focus).

Needless to say, we are very proud of the hard work and character shown by our pupils whom, due to a talented teaching team and devoted parents, managed to achieve some results that would make many ready for their respective futures.

Well done, everyone!
