A SCHOOL on a Weston estate has received national recognition for the progress made by its pupils.
Bournville Primary School in Selworthy Road, is in the top 0.4 per cent of primary schools nationally for pupils’ progress between their key stage one and key stage two exams. The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award as a result.
Headteacher Adam Matthews said: “It’s great to be recognised. Being in the top two per cent of top 20 per cent of schools nationally in terms of KS2 pupil progress is the net result of hard work by the children and the outstanding staff team that support them.
“The stuff that goes on in this school is amazing – long may it continue.”
Sue Williamson, the chief executive of SSAT, formerly called the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, said the school should be congratulated for its exceptional achievement.
She said: “They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving outcomes for their pupils. There is so much good practice that this school could share.
“These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of students, teachers and the leadership team, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every child.”
