Primary league tables: How did your school do?

New primary school league tables for England have been published by the Department for Education, including all primary schools in Essex.

The tables are based on how 11-year-olds in each school performed in national curriculum tests – or SATs – taken at the end of primary school. 

The tables highlight how well each school is performing and give parents a way of comparing schools in their areas.

This year was the fourth time children sat the government’s tougher tests, introduced in 2016.

The data shows 65% of pupils met the expected standard across all tests: reading, writing and mathematics– up from 64% last year.

The statistics also show the gap between girls and boys has widened, with girls continuing to outperform boys across all subjects at the expected standard. 

In 2019, 70% of girls reached the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, compared with 60% of boys – a gender gap of 10 percentage points, up from eight in 2018.

The data was published by the Department for Education on Friday 13 December and provides the results at each individual school level.
